We love jicama dipped in citrus and then sprinkled with salt and jalapenos. I needed to bring a salad to a Fourth of July picnic, so as I ate my jicama, I created one starring this crunchy veggie and its sidekick flavors. I use a mandolin to expedite prep work. —Jan and Frank Ruiz, Yucaipa, California
