Variations on the Jicama salad theme: Pineapple Jicama Salad

By: Heather Nielson

I will freely admit I’m on a Jicama kick lately. Food addictions or rather, food repeats are a ‘thing’ for me. Once I discover a recipe or a food that I like I tend to hit ‘repeat’ like I would on a favorite song for….awhile. I discovered pho over the winter and after every long, hard wet ride I went straight to get me some pho….a lot. Naturally I got bored of it after awhile and haven’t touched it in a few months. Another normal thing for me. Experimenting with summer salad recipes are as fun for me as fall and winter soup recipes (obviously you can see the ‘repeat’ theme in my life). I used to use celery to add the ‘crunchy’ element to my salads but after a long time, obviously got bored of celery (#repeattheme). Then I discovered Jicama! I’m sure it will be replaced with something else after awhile; but for now, you’ll be blessed with yet another summer salad Jicama-themed recipe: Pineapple Jicama Salad:
