READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Brenda.

Jicima is a crisp, sweet vegetable that is delicious either raw or cooked. Sometimes called the Mexican potato, it's sweet and nutty taste makes it a wonderful addition to salads.

A very nice tasting salad, which gave me an opportunity to use some of the five spice powder that I use soooo seldom! I like the crunchy jicama paired with the subtle taste of the pears & raisins in this dish! Thanks for the recipe ~ It's great!
