Mexican Fruit Salad

This is another one of those recipes learned from my Mexican uncle (two things should be clear at this point in the game: 1. He makes really yummy, authentic food that I very much and enjoy and 2. I can’t resist Mexican food.  Ever.).  This is a super easy fruit salad with sweet fruit and a spicy kick.  Perfect!

This frequents our table when making a Mexican feast, or when we can find jicama…a challenge in rural NE Ohio.


  • 1 pineapple, peeled, cored and julienned
  • 1 jicama, peeled and julienned
  • 2 large mangoes, peeled, cored, and julienned
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Chili Powder to taste
  • Sea Salt to taste

We’re about to get complicated here folks…toss everything in a bowl.  Garnish with a little lime zest if you’re feeling fancy.

  1. That looks wonderful and is making me want tacos. I think it’d be a nice lighter side with those, especially chicken or fish.
