Fresh & Crisp Jicama Mango Salad

Another fan favourite from the Healthy Gourmet Show, this crispy salad is perfect from a hot summer day. Jicama (pronounced HE-kuh-muh) is a root vegetable that is popular in Mexico. It tastes like a potato crossed with water chestnut and pear, and it is super low in calories (1 cup contains 46 calories and 6 whopping grams of fibre).  It is high in beta-carotene, B complex, vitamin C, calcium, iron, and potassium. Its sweet flavour comes from the fructo-oligosaccharide also known as inulin.

1/2           medium red onion, julienned
2             jicamas, peeled and julienned 
1             barely ripe mango, julienned
1/4 cup   goji berries
¼ cup     cilantro, chopped
2 tsp       lime juice
1 tsp       unpasteurized honey
                sea salt to taste
1. Place onion slices in a strainer over a bowl and season with salt. Place a weight over top and let sit for 10 minutes to press out liquid. 
2. Add remaining ingredients to a medium salad bowl. 
3. Combine onions with the rest of the ingredients and toss lightly. Serves 6 as a side salad.
Note: lightly soaking the goji berries in a small amount of water for 20 minutes will plump and soften them. Drain before adding to the salad.
