Here is a refreshing salad filled with summer goodness!
Throw a couple extra ears of corn on the grill the next time you are cooking and make this simple, delicious, and nutritious side!
If you are not familiar with jicama, it is a root vegetable that is white inside and has a slightly sweet taste. To prepare, peel using a vegetable peeler and chop into a small dice. Unlike an apple, the flesh will not turn brown so your salad will look fresh for hours! Nutritionally, it is high in fiber and vitamin C while being low in sugar and having a moderate amount of plant protein. In addition, jicama is rich in prebiotic fiber that helps restore the good bacteria in your gut! If you cannot find it, turnip, kohlrabi, or daikon radish would be good substitutes.

After grilling the corn, you will need to cut the kernels off the cob. This video demonstrates an easy, and less messy, way to do it.
