Black Bean and Jicama Salad
Super savory and the ultimate fresh summer salad, this black bean and jicama salad can be spiced up or spiced down, can be made to incorporate those “coming out of your ears” summer garden vegetables, and can be jazzed up with grilled chicken or steak to make a satisfying southwestern style main entree.

1 cup peeled, finely diced jicama
1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
