This recipe is from Tyler Florence (Food Network). It's crunchy, sweet, citrusy, and spicy all in one! A great side dish for Mexican night.

I hate to rate this a 3, however I followed the directions to a tee and it didn't have much flavor :( I went to other recipes like this and looked at their ingredients and I put together 1TBSP olive oil, 1 TBSP balsamic vinegar, and 1TSP honey and added, that made it a 5!

When making this recipe I did change one thing ~ Since I didn't have dried chilies handy, I used 2 TABLESPOONS of canned green chilies that I'd patted dry with a paper towel & then finely chopped! VERY, VERY TASTY SALAD, & definitely a keeper recipe! Of course, we really enjoy jicama around here, so that makes a big difference!
