Radish Jicama Salad with Lemon Cumin Vinaigrette

Sharon Palmer

I love this crispy, cool weather salad, featuring crunchy radishes, jicama, and kale. This easy, delicious salad (which is also vegan and gluten-free) is inspired by seasonal produce. Depending on your growing season, radishes, jicama, and kale are often harvested at the same time. Paired with a flavorful olive oil vinaigrette, seasoned with lemon, cumin seeds and garlic, this easy recipe is pure, crunchy delight. Based on only 6 ingredients (not including pantry staples), you can this on the table so quickly! Use a mandolin to make slicing even easier. Try using a variety of radishes to change the color palette of this pretty salad. It’s also good the next day! Serve it with a hearty soup, such as this lentil soup or chili, or with a flavorful sandwich, such as this vegan BLTA
