Do you like food with a little crunch? If so, Jicama is the perfect recipe add-in. It may not be pretty on the outside, but it’s the inside that counts. It is mild in flavor, crisp, and crunchy. Its texture has been compared to a cross between a potato and a water chestnut. You can eat it fresh, like in a salad or on a veggie try, or you can roast it or cook it with other veggies in a stir fry. It’s the perfect addition to a slaw recipe or chopped in fresh salsa.
