Mango Jicama Salsa

I’m always will to try a great new salsa to top chicken tacos or fish tacos.  This salsa is so summery and refreshing, and it went great as a topper for fish tacos.

I saw a recipe for jicama salad in the March 2009 issue of Cooking Light, which was the initial inspiration of my mango jicama salsa.
Ingredients:

  • 1/2 c. jicama, julienne-cut
  • 2-3 mangos, sliced or cubed
  • 1/2 of a small red onion, sliced
  • 1/2 of a red, orange, or yellow bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 to 2 jalapenos, chopped
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1 tsp. sugar (more or less depending on how ripe the mangos are)
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 c. cilantro, chopped

Directions:

  1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl.  Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary.
  2. Top your tacos, and enjoy.
