Jicama is a legume which grows underground. Often called a Mexican potato, it is crunchy like a water chestnut and is commonly added raw to salads. Shop for jicama in the produce section of most larger grocery stores. To prepare, remove the peel, including the fibrous flesh that is under the skin. Cut or slice the jicama as desired and serve raw.
Grilling caramelizes the natural sugars in the fruit.
Allow 30 to 40 min. for charcoal coals to be ready for outdoor grilling. The coals are ready when covered with a fine gray ash. If the fire is too hot, carefully use tongs to spread out the coals. Or, for a hotter fire push the coals closer together.
This delicious salad is rich in vitamin C from the combination of mango and pineapple. In addition, it provides 1 cup of the recommended 2-1/2 cups of vegetables per day and 1/2 cup of the recommended 2 cups of fruit per day.

Served this for a lunch with an old friend and it was wonderful. Grilling the fruit really seems to make the flavors pop. I just used my george forman. It was refreshing and you can bet I will be making this one again real soon.
