I first stumbled across this Avocado, Jicama and Cucumber Salad when my husband and I were having dinner and watching one of our favorite Texas country artists play at The Rustic, a ‘country’ restaurant in the heart of uptown Dallas. I say ‘country’ because the only thing rustic about The Rustic is it’s home-style(ish) type of food and décor, both of which are still more on the uptown side things than they probably care to admit, though they’re as rustic as many uptowners are willing to patronize.
But nonetheless they have delicious food, and when I saw the avocado salad on the menu, I knew I had to have it! It did not disappoint, leading me to make a recreation for all of you! Because I would never keep such a glorious dish from y’all! That would just be rude. So load up on avocados, make this Avocado, Jicama and Cucumber Salad, and enjoy the fruits of your not-labor because you are in for the best salad of your life!
