  • 1 jalapeno, seeded if desired, minced

  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons minced cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 3/4 teaspoon sugar

Step 1Place the corn, jicama, onions, bell pepper, jalapeno, avocado, oil, lime juice, cilantro, vinegar, salt, cumin and sugar in a bowl. Toss them well to mix.
