It’s not Wednesday, but we’re going to be in the kitchen two days in a row…

The reason why is because I’m out in Connecticut at a Conference and I wanted to make sure that I got you some great content while I’m here.

This spicy jicama, pineapple salad made by our guest raw food chef, Shivie, has been a hit at many of the events she’s catered recently.

Ann and I wanted to share it with you, because – well – it tastes awesome!

Take a look…

Here’s the raw food recipe now…

Spicy Tropical Jicama Salsa

Dressing Ingredients:

1 cup of coconut milk (combine 2/3 cup of coconut meat and 1 cup of coconut water)
½ cup lime juice
4 tbsp of coconut secrets syrup (can use honey, maple syrup or agave)
½ tsp Himalayan pink salt
4-5 tbsp coconut oil, warmed to liquid
½-1 tsp paprika
½-1 jalapeno

Salad Ingredients:

I/2 large pineapple, small cubes
½ jicama, small cubes
1 bunch cilantro, finely chopped
½ red onion, diced (forgot this on video but makes an excellent textural addition and a splash of red adds color)

Place all salad ingredients in a bowl and mix thoroughly. Place all dressing ingredients in Vitamix and blend till smooth.

Pour dressing over salad and mix. Enjoy.

Salad will last 1-2 days in the fridge when dressed or 3-4 if dressing and salad are stored separately.

Live Awesome!

    Like Shivie I enjoy getting my hands in the mix of food, but not when a dressing is involved.

    Will have to try this one. Looks delicious!

  2. Donaji says:

    Oh wow, that looks so good but I’ll have to leave the pepper out for me. I spice up my life by taking risks and trying new things, whether it’s food, people, adventures…looking forward for the summer!

    how is coconut syrup any different/better than agave syrup?? i know that raw agave is much lower on the glycemic index than dates. just wondering how it compares to coconut syrup since she seems to diss agave in this video in favor of syrup of the coconut tree??

  6. Patti says:

    I would also like to know where to get the coconut sweetener. What I do to spice up my life is to go salsa dancing with a friend.
