This recipe comes from my Mom. Jicama belongs to the legume or bean family (Fabaceae). It is a popular dietary staple in Latin America and widely grown in Mexico and Central America. Jicama looks similar to a turnip or a large radish, and it can be used as an alternative to the water chestnut. Raw jicama is often used as an accompaniment to raw vegetable platters.
- 1 lb jicama, peeled and grated
- 1 large pomegranate, cut into quarters and seeds removed
- 2 tablespoons of fresh mint, leafs finely shredded
- 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
- In a serving bowl, add grated, peeled Jicama, mint leafs, and lime juice; mix well;.
- Add pomegranate seedsand toss to incorporate.
- Serve chilled.
It's hard to beat a combo like jicama & pomegranate, I think, & although I was tempted to leave out the mint, it added a nice touch! Definitely a keeper of a recipe! Thanks, much, for sharing it! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Healthy Choices ABC]
