We nearly flipped when we saw this Food Network Kitchens recipe for Cucumber Jicama Gimlet Salsa.

Ingredients
1 jicama, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks (about 1 pound)
1 English cucumber, cut into 1/4-inch dice (about 12 ounces)
1 medium red onion, finely diced (about 2/3 cup)
1 Fresno pepper, finely diced
1/4 cup gin
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon sugar
Juice and zest of 2 limes
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
Tortilla chips for serving

Directions
Place the jicama in a food processor and pulse until finely chopped. Remove to a medium bowl. Stir in the cucumber, onion, pepper, gin, oil, sugar, lime juice and zest. Season with salt and pepper. Refrigerate until chilled, at least 1 hour or overnight. Serve with tortilla chips.

Bonus: it gets even better if it’s refrigerated overnight, so make ahead for your next get-together or game day celebration
