The ingredients are great, but I recommend that you let the salad sit and absorb the flavors before serving. That makes this taste much better. This recipe has a beautiful presentation, and is beautiful on the plate. Thanks for sharing!

This is a really simple salad and it uses ingredients I often have on hand. I really like jicama, and I'm always looking for new variations for this vegetable. We had this as a side with our dinner of Migas #370596 and some free-range preservative-free bacon, which resulted in a great combination of flavors and textures. Thanks for posting, I'll add this to the jicama rotation! As suggested by previous reviewers, I did marinade overnight before serving.
