This unique version of bruschetta uses cherries as a substitute for tomatoes, and instead of grilled bread, jicama!
  • 2 cups pitted, chopped cherries
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh basil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced (about 2 tablespoons)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil + more for brushing
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt + more for sprinkling
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 jicama
  1. In a medium-sized bowl, combine cherries, basil, garlic, olive oil, salt and vinegar. Set aside to let the flavors meld.
  2. Cut jicama into ¼-inch slices. Cut slices into shapes with a cookie cutter.
  3. Heat grill to 450 degrees F. Brush each jicama slice on both sides with olive oil, and salt on each side as well.
  4. Grill jicama 1 minute per side. Serve grilled jicama slices with cherry mixture spooned on top.
