Strawberry Jicama Salad.

I can't think of anything better than ripe strawberries, crunchy jicama, herbaceous cilantro and fresh cucumber lightly dressed with a honey-kissed lime dressing. Adding the chile adds the perfect hint of heat that rounds out the sweetness of the strawberries.

2 cups strawberries, diced
1 cup jicama, peeled and diced
1/2 cup cucumber, diced
1 serrano chile, minced (remember to remove the seeds first)
3 tbs fresh cilantro, finely chopped
2 tbs red onion, minced
2 tbs fresh lime juice
1 tbs extra virgin olive oil
1 tbs agave nectar
salt & pepper to taste

Combine strawberries, jicama, cucumber, chile, cilantro and red onion in a bowl and set aside. In another bowl whisk together lime juice, olive oil and agave nectar until well combined. Add dressing to the salad and season with salt and pepper, as needed. Serve over greens or enjoy as is. Delish!
