Jicama, Radish and Mango Salad

"From June 2011 All You. For this recipe you can swap celery for jicama and apple (Granny Smith might work best) for mango. In addition the radish could be replaced by another raw crunchy veggie."

    This was a very good salad. I enjoyed the smooth mango alongside the crunch of the jicama and radishes. Later I added a few fresh garden strawberries to the mix, and they also went really well in the salad. The only thing I would do differently next time is omit the shallot, as I thought it overpowered the dressing and was very potent. Thanks so much!

    We do love jicama & we do love mango, & we did most definitely love your salad, with its great combo of flavors! Definitely a salad I'll be making again during the warm summer months! A keeper recipe, for sure! Thanks for sharing it! [Made & reviewed in New Kids on the Block recipe tag]

    This salad was top-notch! My husband kept bringing home mangos and I found this in a Sunday magazine and decided to try it. I forgot the fresh parsley the first time and it really does make a difference in the taste; however, it was quite tasty without it.

    This is a really great, fresh summer salad. I made it just as written and it was delish! I was worried when I tasted the dressing, because it was not very good on its own, but with everything combined it was great! Made for ZWT 7.

<p>I live in Minnesota (brr) and enjoy cooking, reading, and relaxing. My real name is Brianna so feel free to call me by that name. I have just finished my first year of college. Looking forward to cooking over the summer :)</p> <p>Also, if you were wondering about my username that is because whenever I sign up for a site that requires a username this is what I would use (since it is unique and when I first came up with it I was reading Tom Sawyer). I guess I could change it but I haven't.</p>
