Watermelon & Jicama Salad

I recently ran across this in the August issue of Good Housekeeping.  It has zero fat and sounds great for a hot summer day!  Haven't  had a chance to try it yet but remember that someone was asking for jicama recipes.

2 med. jicama (peeled and cubed - 3/4 in. cubes)
1/4 c. fresh lime juice
1/2 tsp. salt
1 piece watermelon (2 1/2 lbs.)
1/2 c. chopped fresh cilantro leaves
1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper 
lime slices (garnish)

Toss jicama with lime juice and salt.  Cover & refrig. 30 mins.
Cut rind off watermelon & discard.  Cut melon into 1/4 inch cubes to equal 4 cups.  Remove seeds. Add melon , cilantro, and pepper to jicama; toss well. Refrig. 15 minutes more to blend flavors.  Garnish with lime slices.  Makes about 8 cups.
