I had jicama that had to be used fast and this fit the bill - I did not use the chili powder but added it my small dish of coucous and chicken breast

Dbf and I enjoyed this light little salad before dinner. So easy to put together and cutting it in cubes made it easy to eat. After one bite we looked at each other and said, "this is good!"
