You may be more familiar with a tomato version of this condiment. Here is the traditional Mexican recipe. Pico de gallo seasoning is a blend of ground mixed hot peppers and salt. You can find it on the spice aisle.
1/2 cup diced jícama
1/2 small cucumber, peeled and thinly sliced
2 small oranges, sectioned
1/4 teaspoon pico de gallo seasoning
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 green bell pepper, halved
How to Make It
Stir together first 5 ingredients in a small bowl. Cover and chill at least 2 hours; spoon evenly into bell pepper halves.
The flavors in this dish complimented each other so well. At first I was apprehensive but am glad I decided to make it. I ended up using this as a side dish and had so much leftovers. Great for a picnic even! Never used jicama before and am glad I tried something new. I thought to myself "I don't like eating potatoes raw so why would I like this Mexican version." It's so fresh tasting, nothing like a potato.
