Jicama & Avocado Salad

This salad combines the wonderful flavors of jicama and avocado with refreshing citrus. However, contrasting textures make this recipe really sing. Crisp and refreshing, this salad is a great light dinner on its own, but is also perfect paired with jerked pork (or tofu) for a tropical evening at home. Mango margaritas, anyone?
