The tangy dressing and juicy jicama make a great combination. Cider or rice vinegar can be used in place of the white vinegar. From the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

the idea of the dressing is the best part. For heaven's sake use fresh broccoli and DON'T cook it! I hesitated putting the berries in boiling water, but thought rehydrating them might be interesting. then I patted them dry, so they didn't water down the salad. Dice the jicama so it has crunch. I didn't have lemon yogurt so I used plain Greek and added lemon zest and some palm sugar. I also used apple cider vinegar instead of white. I have never changed a recipe so much, but I knew it would end up good with a few changes.

I made this for a healthy "Super Bowl" snack. I thought it was great - but DH wasnt so fond of it. He didnt like the dressing. I did use FF yogurt and mayo - that could be the problem. I enoyed it and brought some to work with me today.
