"Made this for a side for supper. Loved it! I'm not a fan of Mango, so I used Pineapple instead! Loved the Jicama, my first time trying it and was very pleasantly surprised, it was nice and sweet! Keeper for me!"

"Jicama is a root vegetable, very commonly used in Southwest meals. It's slightly sweet, crunchy, and has the texture of a white radish. My mother used to slice a peeled jicama 1/4 inch thick, and then season with soy sauce and lemon juice. (We'd combine about 2/3 soy sauce with 1/3 lemon, and soak the jicama in it...and it was SO delicious! Forget it, if you are sodium conscious :) )"
