SPICY PINEAPPLE and JICAMA SALAD
1 -fresh pineapple cut into chunks

1 -medium jicama, peeled and chunked

1 -fresh lime – juiced

hot sauce to taste (chili powder is OK too)

If you don't want to cut up your own pineapple, buy it fresh, but cut into chunks already.

Cut the jicama in half, and then cut side down on the cutting board, cut off the suede-like skin. You can also use a paring knife and peel it whole, like an apple. (The peel is too thick to use a vegetable peeler, in case you were wondering.)

Gently roll the lime on a tabletop or counter to soften the fruit. You get more juice this way. Cut the lime in half and squeeze into the jicama/pineapple mix. Add splashes of your favorite hot sauce until your nose starts running (just kidding!). Naturally, add hot sauce to taste. You can use powdered chili instead. It shows a bit prettier that way, but the wet hot sauce marries better with the wet pineapple juice.
