Jicama black bean salad is great for a cookout or potluck. Also, it is great for dinner along side grilled proteins (like pork chops or hamburger patties) or as a main dish for a hot summer day. *Remember: beans should be limited to twice per week due to the starch content.*

    Tips on cutting jicama? I find it challenging to not get any toughness from the skin.

      I typically use a vegetable peeler but have to go over it twice to get through the waxy layer. This is a good video demo using a knife that might be easier! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s6r9k0uZX-w
