Spicy Jicama Fennel Apple Salad

Dinner Party, Gluten Free, Paleo, Sides, Vegetarian5 Responses »

With temperatures steadily rising this past weekend.

I was longing for salad that was crisp, cool, tangy, and just a tiny bit spicy.

A salad that would happily share a plate with grilled chicken, or perhaps fish.

Because, I was not involving the oven in the preparation of this meal – way too hot for that.

At first we were thinking citrus marinated seafood or grilled lemon thyme chicken.

Or,  a nice fat juicy cheeseburger…….

What would you choose?

We opted for the latter.

It was our super tasty homage to summer.

So glad you are finally here.

Cheers.
