Fajita Chopped Salad with Avocado Cilantro Jalapeno Dressing

I wasn’t going to post a recipe for dressing and not post a follow up recipe. This fajita chopped salad paired with this avocado cilantro jalapeno dressing is a great way to get your Mexican cuisine fix while also being Whole30 friendly.

Those white cubes? That’s not cheese. That’s jicama. Not that I am one to be giving directions on how to pronounce things, but it is pronounced “hick-eh-muh”. This is known as a “Mexican turnip”- my source for this knowledge? The tab over I currently have for my Google search “jicama”

I love substituting jicama for tortilla chips when eating guac, hummus (not Whole30 friendly, though) or any other dip. It’s crunchy, kinda flavorless, but isn’t stringy like celery. If you’re looking for a veggie/healthy substitute for chips, I suggest trying these.

As for the seasoning, I used this Whole30 Fajita Seasoning (sans the parsley though, not a fan). I used the same seasoning for the peppers and onions mixture too.
