I was in Miami last month and one of the things I ate there was jicama salad. I swear you can make salsa from any fruit or vegetable and it’s always delicious. Jicama is interesting because it’s unique, crunchy, and has a mild flavor that won’t scare anyone. Plus, you can have fun asking people to guess what’s inside! The jicama soaks up the juices, so it’s not a super wet salsa, but it’s perfect for a light, healthy, fresh salsa without the mess. picnic? barbecue? potluck? Yes, yes, yes!
You may be wondering if your local grocery store sells jicama. it might! It was big and yellow, and looked like a giant, monstrous round potato crossed with a turnip. The description alone makes you want to try this, right? Jicama, pronounced hick-uh-muh. Fun to say, easy to make, and a little adventurous.
