    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 Recipe#370596 #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. Made for ZWT8 Family Picks and the Herbaceous Curvaceous Honeys.

    A great refreshing side dish. Loved everything about it. Thanks Cadillacgirl for a nice keeper. Made for ZWT8 - Mexico/Tex Mex.

    A refreshing and light side dish that does have a summery flavor. I made this exactly as posted, using some halved grape tomatoes (which I need to use up) in conjunction with the plum tomato. I prepared this in advance to let the flavors develop and would recommend doing that. Made for ZWT8.


<p>Picture taken just for Zaar - mmmm milkshake...</p> <p>I'm a brand new single mommy to my tiny perfect human, so thank you to everyone who takes the time to make and review my recipes - I try to send a zmail to each of you, but baby girl has a different idea.</p> <p>I'm a good ol' prairie girl from Canada with one side of the family being Ukrainian/Slovakian and the other side is German/Russian. In other words, when we cook we take carbs, cover them in more carbs, fry'em and serve it smothered in onions and cream.&nbsp;<br />No pro chefs in my family, just grandmas and aunts and cousins and a mom that had me pinching perogies and stuffing strudel before I could form a complete sentence. <br />The most dreaded / laughed at phrase I say is, So last night, I invented this thing for supper... - I would probably publish more recipes if I actually remembered everything I put in or had an idea of how much I added!!</p>
