Cucumber, jicama and pepper salad with green olives
1

Combine the cucumber, jicama, pepper strips and olives in a large shallow serving bowl. Mix gently.

2

In a small bowl, whisk the oil with the vinegar and salt and cayenne to taste. Add to the salad and mix.

3

Add the cilantro and mint and toss lightly. Taste and adjust the seasoning.

I like this lively medley with broiled salmon steaks or grilled lamb chops. For best results, use Mediterranean olives.
