Jicama salsa. Look at my salsa, Jicama salsa! No seriously, look at my salsa! There’s jicama in it! Jicama, jicama, jicama! I’m all about it, I like to say it and I like to eat it! What’s jicama? It’s a fantastic root veggie from South America. Actually some claim that it’s a legume. Works for me!
The next time you are at the store or farmer’s market see if you can find a jicama. You’re going to love this little guy! You can eat it raw – slice it up and serve with carrots and peppers. Add it to salads for some crunch. Top your tacos with jicama or add it to salsa!
