"A slightly different version of this recipe (same name, though) was suggested as a pork chop accompaniment in S&D, Aug/Sep 2016. It was excellent although it did not call for watercress or nuts. I will try including walnuts the next time I prepare it. Since my local grocer no longer carries jicama, I substituted julienned Granny Smith apple with good results."
