Jicama “Potato” Salad

By Ritamarie Loscalzo

potato soup

Some people keep their potato salad recipe as secret as their family holiday recipes passed down through generations, but not me! I want to scream this one from the rooftops!

What I love about this recipe is that it’s fresh, delicious, and satisfying without the heaviness so characteristic of traditional potato salads.

It’s full of phytonutrients provided by all the seasonal vegetables and the hemp dressing is a great source of omega 3 fats and plant-based protein containing all nine essential amino acids.  Plus, research suggests that hemp protein is well absorbed by the body.

Add it to the menu of your next barbeque or take it with you when a guest.  People will love it and you’ll love knowing your contribution supports everyone’s best health.

  • jicama, cut into cubes 
  • tomatoes, cut into cubes
