Top Review by Cindy Lynn

This was the first time my family had ever tried Jicamas. We tasted them before I made the salad and loved them. I doubled the recipe because that is how much Jicama I had and I didn't know how to store a partially used Jicama. I allowed this to chill for over 3 hours before serving and was really disappointed by how bland it was. DH liked it well enough that he asked me to pack some in his lunch for work, so I did. I tasted it again while doing so and the flavors had melded more, but it still seemed very bland. I was expecting the lemon and chili powder to really give it some 'zip'. I'm sorry that I can't give this recipe a higher rating, but thank you for sharing.
