This light and creamy salad will dress up any barbecue or picnic. The subtly of the peas is offset by the crunch from the jicama and celery. A tangy, lemon-dill dressing brings it all together perfectly!

  • 1 small jicama, peeled and shredded

  • 2 tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
