Watermelon, Blueberry, Jicama Salad

Watermelon, Blueberry, and Jicama Salad

  • 1/2 watermelon, cubed (3-4 cups)
  • 1 large jicama, peeled and cubed
  • 2 pints of blueberries
  • Juice of 1 large lime
  • Fresh mint, to taste

Mix all together in large bowl and enjoy!

Jicama
  • Low in calories and low on the glycemic index scale
  • Excellent source of vitamin C
  • Contains insoluble fiber (great prebiotic for friendly bacteria in the intestines)
  • Texture of a radish, taste similar to an apple
  • Best consumed raw in salads, salsa, slaw, or sliced into sticks for snacks
  • Peeling jicama and slicing it can be a bit difficult at first, but worth the effort!
