Strawberry Mango Salad Recipe on twopeasandtheirpod.com This simple and healthy salad is perfect for summertime!

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. TheΒ  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?

  1. 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!

  2. 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! πŸ˜‰ I also like lighter pasta/rice salads – ones with vinaigrettes rather than creamy/mayo dressings.

  3. 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.

  4. 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!

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

  6. 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!

  7. 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.

  8. 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!

  9. 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.

  10. 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!

  11. No snow here just rain, rain, rain. This salad looks bright, healthy, and delicious. I bet the jicama gave it a great texture.

  12. 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.

  13. I was reading all kinds of tweets about snow and couldn’t believe it! I love snow, but by May I’m ready for summer. This salad is beautiful!

  14. 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 =)

  15. Could you believe that snow storm? I love jicima, but sometimes it is so hard to cut, especially if it is extra large. I have so many favorite side dishes for BBQ’s . . but I do love the cowboy bean dish with chips. It’s always a hit and I always come home with an empty dish. Have a great weekend.

  16. What a refreshing salad! The sweetness of the strawberries and mango would pair nicely with the neutral flavor of the jicama.

  17. This looks so refreshing. I wish I could hunt down some jicama. I’ve never been able to find any and it sounds delish. My favorite side? Corn on the cob. πŸ˜€

    1. Kristen-I think I shed a tear when I saw all of the snow on my pretty lilacs. It is melted now and hopefully it is gone for good!

  18. What a riot of colours.

    And mangoes- its a crime to remind an Indian of mangoes at this time of the year. Especially if they are away from home. Sigh.

  19. I cannot believe you’re still getting snow! I’m so sorry. Making this salad seems like a good way to hang on to good weather memories. It looks delicious!

  20. Strawberries and mangoes – I have not tried that combination before – because generally mangoes are available in summer and fresh strawberries in spring. Anyway, I am going to try out your recipe. Thanks for the great share.

  21. I LOVE THIS RECIPE!!
    It was my first taste of jicama and I fell for it! I have sub the mango for papaya one time and the strawberries for peaches another time. Just working with what I have! The strawberries give it beautiful color. But both ways taste amazing! As well as the original! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe!

  22. This salad looks lovely, but I despise cilantro! Really, really, despise it! What can I substitute for it? Thanks, and I love your site.
