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.

Ingredients Nutrition

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]
