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, then cut or slice the jicama as desired.
Jicama is a relative of the potato that is commonly used in Latin dishes. A versatile vegetable, jicama can be enjoyed raw or cooked. When eaten raw, it tastes a bit like an apple; when cooked, it takes on the flavor of the food it is accompanying. Add jicama to your cooking repertoire for a good source of fiber and an excellent source of vitamin C.
Not only is the lettuce in this crunchy salad rich in vitamin A, but it also teams up with the jicama and mangos for an excellent source of vitamin C.
