Apples pair with jicama and celery to create a simple, healthy side dish that could work for menus in all market segments.

Ingredients

1⁄2 large jicama, peeled, sliced into matchsticks
1 Gala apple, cored, sliced into matchsticks
1 tbsp. fresh-squeezed lime juice
6 stalks celery, peeled, sliced into matchsticks
1 tbsp. fresh-squeezed orange juice
Chopped cilantro (if desired)

2. Divide evenly.

Note: Peeling celery prevents it from being stringy. Cut fruit in same size for consistent flavor and balance.
