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

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.
What a pretty, colorful salad! And it sounds so refreshing, too. Great for a grilling party!
This salad is a great mix of colors, flavors and textures.
What a refreshing salad! The sweetness of the strawberries and mango would pair nicely with the neutral flavor of the jicama.
My kind of salad!
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. 😀
I would have to cry, I think, if we got this far into the year and we had snow.
This salad looks like a great pick me up though!
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!
This looks great… I have only ever had jicama in a slaw before, but I think it would be wonderful in this salad. I’ll have to keep my eyes out for some jicama so that I can make this!
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.
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!
What scrumptious color mmmmm. I have never used jicama before. You have me intrigued 🙂
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.
Hmmn…refreshing. I especially love mango, so if it’s in anything I am so there!
Thanks for inspiring me to make this, it was really delicious!
Alisa-glad you tried the salad and enjoyed it!
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!
This salad looks lovely, but I despise cilantro! Really, really, despise it! What can I substitute for it? Thanks, and I love your site.
Simple, clean and delicious! Strawberries are back at the farmer’s market now, so I’ll have to give this a try!
