Jicama Fruit Salad

Carol White

Jicama -The root's exterior is yellow and papery, while its inside is creamy white with a crisp texture that resembles raw potato or pear. The flavor is sweet and starchy, reminiscent of some apples or raw green beans, and it is usually eaten raw, sometimes with salt, lemon, or lime juice and chili powder.
Jicama's unique flavor lends itself well to salads, salsas, and vegetable platters.
