Beet, Jicama & Avocado Salad

I've been wanting to try this salad for some time. The warm weather today triggered my urge! This was a delicious salad. I know beets are not a huge vegetable "favorite", but this was wonderful... and satisfying. I highly recommend!

2 C raw beets, grated (3 medium beets) ... I used golden beets! Yum!
1 Jicama (about 2 C, grated)
4 radishes, grated
2 avocado, sliced in chunks
1/2 C cilantro, chopped
2 T lemon juice
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp ground coriander
2 T olive oil
Pinch celtic grey sea salt
Fresh ground black pepper

Grate beets, jicama and radishes (I used a food processor). Add avocado and cilantro. Whisk together lemon juice, cumin, and coriander. Whisk in oil. Pour over beet mixture and toss to mix well. Season with salt and pepper, if desired. Serve! :-)

I served this with some steamed zucchini, and spiced rubbed, grilled chicken! It was delicious!
Hope you give this a try. I think I'll be making this a lot over the spring & summer months! Enjoy!

My husband truly hates most vegetables except for the few you mentioned (I don't think he knows what jicama is.. and I won't be telling him). I will definitely try this one! Thanks!

I am going to make this salad this weekend for a dinner invite and I want to make sure all veggies are raw and not cooked... right? I'm a little nervous.
