This was really good, and a nice way to use jicama, which I have found I really like ! I used another recipe for the dressing as I don't really care for lemon poppy seed. I used Citrus Honey Dressing #244229 for the dressing, which I thought went quite well. I loved the crunchy-sweet textures of this salad, and I will definitely make it again. Thanks for posting - made for "Come to a Garden Party" tag on the Diabetic Forum.

Great! My first time with jicama, and I am quite pleased. I was glad to find mandarin oranges packed in juice and not syrup, and I made my own "dressing" of fat free mayo, lemon juice, Splenda, and poppy seed. I liked the lime a lot and added more, using bottled lime juice instead of zest (as I did not have a fresh lime.) I served this with Asian cuisine, it was a lovely side. Thanks MHS!
