This can be a great low carb salad if using Splenda instead of sugar. Allow at least 1 hour chilling time for the flavors to meld.

This is a tasty and different salad that my entire family enjoyed. It also kept well in the fridge and we had it over several meals.

I made this to take on the river this weekend. It was a big hit. My husband at first wasn't too sure about the jicama. I hadn't used it before but after one taste we both loved it. I used a combo of red & orange bell peppers, that made it colorful & tastey! Thanks for a great idea. Teena

Great recipe> So often jicama salad I have had in the past is a little flat in flavor. Love the zesty, tangy sweetness to this dressing. It's a keeper!
