Grated Raw Beet Salad with Jicama, Avocado, and Orange

Raw beets taste similar to raw carrots in that they’re sweet, juicy, and crisp. Jicama, a Mexican root vegetable that looks like a large, pale, round potato, is crunchy and mild when peeled and eaten raw. If you can’t find jicama, simply substitute cubed cucumber in this salad.

Comments on this Recipe

We really enjoyed this recipe. Very fresh and summer-y. Can't wait to eat the rest tomorrow.

OMG, this is such a good salad! Keeps in the fridge for a few days too.

I agree. It's delicious, and it was fun to finally see what a jicama looked like straight from the farmers' market. This is a great salad to bring to a picnic.

I made this salad for Father's Day Dinner. My picky husband and other guests liked it! Simple and Tasty! Beets pink and Avocado green look pretty, too.

This recipe is sooooooo good.

Made this for lunch today and it was so delicious! I subbed the jicima with cucumber and approximated serving for one! This recipe is definitely a keeper! Will be awesome at a dinner party!
