Doesn’t this salad look so crisp and refreshing?

It’s from the people at Smith’s Food and Drug. You can see the recipe here. I can’t wait to cut out the stars from jicama to make it!

If you substitute stevia-sweetened yogurt for the dressing and limit your portion size, it would count as a Trim Healthy Mama E recipe (THM – E).

So here’s my modification of the recipe:


  • 1 cup nonfat plain yogurt
  • juice of one lime
  • liquid or dry stevia
  • 1/4 tsp mineral salt
  • 1⁄2 jicama, peeled, cut into 1/4-inch slices
  • 2 1⁄2 cups cubes (3/4 inch) seedless watermelon
  • 1 bag (10 oz) chopped or hearts of romaine lettuce (6 cups)
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries

Mix the yogurt with lime juice, salt, and stevia, adding until it’s sweet enough for you. Toss the rest of the ingredients together. Serve the dressing on the side and let people top on salad as desired.
