I’ve been trying to come up with a side dish for Memorial Day and the 4th of July and instead of my traditional dessert, I decided on a Red White, and Blue Salad.

It is easy to make and only has a few ingredients to whip it up in a hurry. You can even use frozen berries. It is almost more of a salsa but chunkier. This is a great side dish or appetizer to bring to any party. But I warn you to get a small bowl for yourself before you serve, it will be gone before you know it.

This is red white and blue for summer holidays, but you can mix it up however you like. No jicama? Use apples. Bananas would also be a “white” food. If using bananas, add some lime juice to them before placing in the bowl.

  2. Never heard of a jicama so I google it, it is a yam of types, is it peppery in flavour? I know strawberry and pepper work really well. Found you via Showcase Your Talent Thursday
