Ingredients:

  • 2 oranges
  • 1 jicama
  • 2 cucumbers
  • lemon juice
  • orange juice
  • rock salt (optional)
  • red pepper flakes (optional)

How to Prepare:

Peel two oranges, seed and cut them into cubes.

Peel and cube one medium sized jicaima.

Peel, seed and cube two medium sized cucumbers.

Mix the oranges, jicama and cucumbers together, add the juice of 1/2 lemon, a little orange juice to taste, a sprinkling of rock salt.

Chill and then serve in a bowl with toothpicks. It is light, delicious and nicely filling.

Mexicans often sprinkle red pepper flakes over this appetizer for a little mucho gusto and let me tell you, we can all use a little more mucho gusto in our lives every now and then.
