“I got this out of a magazine years ago, and have been making it all around the year. I love introducing jicama to friends and family. I have made this numerous times, have taken to many a BBQ and pot lucks. It's sometimes a little hard to get people to take the first bite , but after that they're sold!Jicama tastes like a sweet version of a potato Ya don't know what you're mising!! Chill time is cook time. I sometimes will cut either red or green bell peppers, sliced into very thin slices and add to the mixture.”
