Strawberry Mango Jicama Salad Recipe

Strawberry Mango Jicama Salad Recipe

It snowed in Utah on Monday. My pretty purple lilacs were weighed down with heavy snow. I was not happy, but luckily the snow has melted. The sun is shining again and I hope it is here to stay. I made this strawberry mango jicama salad because is screams summer and I am ready for warm weather.

This salad is a perfect side dish to any summer meal. The strawberries and mango are juicy, sweet, and vibrant. The  jicama provides a nice crunch to this simple salad. The cilantro and lime are the perfect finish to this bright and exquisite salad.

I think I will make a big bowl of this strawberry mango and jicama salad for our Memorial Day barbeque. What are your favorite bbq sides?

Strawberry Mango Jicama Salad

Yield: Serves 4

    What a colorful dish! Perfect for a bbq. I love the crunch of jicama. Sorry about the snow- hopefully that was the last one of the season for you. Favorite bbq side dish- grilled corn, baked beans, fruit salad!

    I can’t believe it snowed there – just crazy! When Dara tweeted that, it was in the 80s here!

    Another great salad! I love any type of salad for BBQs…ones that scream fresh and keep you coming back for more – like this one! ;) I also like lighter pasta/rice salads – ones with vinaigrettes rather than creamy/mayo dressings.

    I was seriously bummed about the snow, but most of my garden seems to be okay. (Not sure about a couple of tiny tomato plants though.)

    The salad looks great! I like the idea of using jicama in a salad with fruit, great combination.

    Definitely some sort of slaw is always a fave, but the tops would have to be potato salad. This one could edge that out, though!

    Maria, lovely fresh and bright salad. Perfect for spring & summer. I hope your snow has passed!

    My Grandmother was obsessed with jicima when I was a teenager :) She always made us eat it. This is a simple salad idea that I know she would love!

    We so often get the same weather that SLC does…but not this time. I’m with you…we’ve had a cold, wet spring and it’s time for some warmth!

    I always look forward to warm weather and an opportunity to make my favorite avocado/tomato/mozzarella/basil pasta salad…so yummy. And I love a mexican rice dish with serrano peppers and cilantro dressing too; can be served at room temp so not only good but one of those things you can transport or set out and not have to worry about!

    I think I would cry if it suddenly snowed, seriously!

    I’ve only ever had jicama in a few dishes, but I love it. This is so easy and so BRIGHT–definitely keeping this in mind for future potlucks :)

    Yummy! I bet the crunch of the jicama is a nice contrast.

    The weather here is strange too this year! I can imagine by now you are sick of the snow. This salad is so bright and colorful. Great idea with the jicama.

    I’ve never used Jicama in a salad before, but I do love it. Sounds like a great flavor combination.

    This salad looks so refreshing and delicious! I’ve never had Jicama but I saw it in the store the other day and almost bought it. Now that I see this recipe I’ll definitely have to give Jicama a try!

    Oh, I love this! I have jicama in the fridge that I need to use, so maybe this will be on our table soon. Great recipe.

    Snow at the end of May! Ridiculous. And uncalled for. At least you have some delicious salsa to eat. So pretty!

    My favorite BBQ sides are my mom’s potato salad and creamy corn. Growing up in Texas you hardly ever find any BBQ side as bright and beautiful as your salad…and not to mention healthy.

    I love jicama. This looks like a great combination. Maybe I’ll bring it to my brother’s barbecue this weekend if I can find the time to cook up another salad.

    Sorry about the snow! I hate having snow just when you think spring has sprung. When I was on vacation last week I arrived on a 70-degree day and when I left at the end of the week, it was snowing. It made me happy to go home. Now the temps are in the 90s and I’m missing my chilly vacation!

    What a terrific salad. I’m sure it will disappear quickly at the BBQ. I don’t have a favorite BBQ side salad, I love them all so much.

    Wow! Your photos are awesome. The lighting is great..is it usually natural or do you use a flash or light box? Either way, awesome! This recipe looks delicious too =)

    • twopeas replied: — May 28th, 2010 @ 5:54 pm

      Ashley-now that it is lighter outside, we are shooting in natural light. In the winter, we sometimes have to use lights because we both work full time. Natural light is the best, but we do have these lights for emergencies:) http://astore.amazon.com/twpeanthpo-20/detail/B0021AEQ7K
