This recipe comes from Betty Crocker's Mexican Made Easy cookbook, that was a Christmas present from my husband. I love this salad! Don't leave out the jicama, if at all possible. It is a nice crunch in the salad. I serve tortilla chips along side it--makes a complete lunchtime meal. Or, serve with other mexican foods for more of a dinner.
