Jicama Salad

Jicama Salad

Jicama is a versatile root vegetable primarily used in central american cuisine. It’s slightly sweet and refreshing, with the starch of a potato and the crispness of an apple. It takes on the stronger flavors of lime and onion very well and is simply delicious. Paired with seared chicken help makes it a complete meal.
