Jicama en Mexico

March 26, 2008

Phew, this vacationing business is hard work! Deciding between the pool and the beach is just a bit more than I can handle. After a long hard day in the sun I crave something crisp and fresh.  The perfect snack in Mexico (or anywhere, really) is sliced jicama and cucumbers with chili powder, fresh squeezed lime juice and a pinch of salt. 

Back to the hammock..

Too bad you have to interrupt your sunny vacation to write your food blog, but "thanks" for the tasty looking low-calorie Mexican dish. Keep up the good writing.
