Mango, Jicama, and Black Bean Salad

Mango, Jicama, and Black Bean Salad

You can use a green apple instead if you can’t find jicamas. The jicama is similar to a turnip but it’s usually eaten raw in salads and it has a mild sweet flavor.


  • 1 jicama, peeled and diced
  • 1 mango, peeled and diced
  • 1/2 can black beans, rinsed
  • 1 jalapeno pepper (optional)
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • salt and pepper
  • 5 scallions or 1/2 red onion, chopped
  • chopped cilantro (optional)
  • Directions:

    Whisk together olive oil and lemon juice and combine with the rest of the ingredients. Season with salt and pepper.

    Serving suggestions: Eat this refreshing salad as a side dish, a salad, or put it in a whole wheat tortilla wrap with avocado and lettuce.
