Never heard of jicama (pronounced hee-kam-ah)? You’re not alone! Jicama is a really interesting and very healthy vegetable!
This is an old favourite salad with a new twist! The flavour can be varied by adding spices of your choice to the dressing (curry, ginger, chilli, etc). There are many jicama recipes resources on the internet – I have listed a couple at the bottom of this recipe. Enjoy!
