  1. Everything Sweet
    Nice and fresh, but with a kick. This is the first time I have had jicama and I was surprised how sweet it was. Something different for a salad. I did double the chili powder since I wanted more kick. I didn't have spinach so I used romaine instead and it was great!
  2. Garlic Chick
    Good salad! I've made this twice and the second time I spiced up the dressing some as I felt it didn't have an interesting enough flavor the first time when made per recipe. To the dressing I added about two tablespoons packed cilantro, 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper for heat and increased the sugar to two teaspoons, then whipped it all up in the Cuisinart. Tasty salad and not so much to chop. I like the sunflower seeds on top, too. Thanks, LonghornMama, for posting - I'll use this again!

    I served this over spinach leaves and sunflower seeds. It was very flavorful. Next time I'd love to try it with jicama and avocado. Thanks LonghornMama for another great recipe. Roxygirl

    This was really really good.The jicama is awesome! I served this with enchiladas. Will definitely go into the make again file.

    Nice change and goes very well with a Mexican meal. I cut the chili powder in half because I am learning that we don't tolerate heat very well. I also crumpled up some chili Dorito tortilla chips on top to give more crunch. They were yummy, but not really necessary with the sunflower seeds.
