Stephanie Homme and her family in Baton Rouge, Louisiana are real fans of jicama. “It’s a Mexican root vegetable that’s like a cross between a turnip and sweet potato,” she explains. “It’s juicy, sweet and adds crunch and heat to this wonderful salad with feisty Mexican flair.”

"This was a delicious Mexican twist on a lettuce salad. I paired it with chipotle turkey burgers, and it was the perfect complement between the hot juicy burgers and the cool crispy salad. I used full-fat mayo and sour cream for full flavored taste, and to help cool down the heat from the chipotle peppers. I also added sliced radishes, a squeeze of lime juice, and skipped the green chilies because I wanted the salad to be made up of all fresh ingredients. Thanks for sharing your delicious recipe!"
