Mango Jicama Salad

“I’m always looking for recipes with out-of-the-ordinary ingredients, like mango and jicama,” relates Doreen Dineen of Freeville, New York. “I couldn’t find one with those fruits, so I creates this crunchy, slightly sweet salad with a refreshing citrus dressing.”

    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 :) )

    Sorry to ask, but I have never heard of a fruit/vege called 'jicama'. Please explain. Shirley
