    FLUFFSTER's Note:

    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.

      Great salad with Mexican fish. I used coleslaw mix and was very quick to make. I did let it sit for about 4 hours and the flavor was great. Still have lots leftover.

      I love jicama & it's a shame that so many shoppers will pass it by without a 2nd thought, unaware of just how great a viggie it is! We really enjoyed it in this recipe as it combined well with the other veggies in this slaw! The only change I made in the ingredients was to use just a hint of the hot pepper sauce! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Healthy Choices tag]
