Jicama, Avocado & Blueberry Lime-Herb Salad
My Jicama Avocado Blueberry Lime Herb Salad Recipe is the perfect zesty dish to enjoy as an appetizer to your Cinco De Mayo meal or as a colorful side dish!

Jicama is also rich in potassium and inulin, which is a pre-biotic that feeds and balances healthy gut bacteria.
Mix the jicama with creamy avocado, sweet blueberries and tangy lime dressing; and you’ve got yourself a nutritious and festive dish to wake up your tastebuds! Trust me, you won’t want to miss out on this recipe ;)
