Cucumber & Jicama Citrus Salad

Cucumber & Jicama Citrus Salad

Hot days call for cool snacks!  As a kid, I can remember having a lot of fruit in between meals and being completely content with whatever fruit it was.  A bowl of watermelon or cantaloupe, or even jicama or cucumber with some lemon and salt was plenty to fill my appetite.  A while back I had the craving for just that, so I put together a quick refreshing cold salad to fill my belly that brought me back to those days.
