This is a great tasting and fresh salad for summer or anytime. It goes really well with a Mexican-style dish.

I made so many changes to this that I'm not even sure it's fair for me to review it, but here goes! I shredded the jicama, added about a cup of cilantro (I love cilantro), added about 2 or 3 tablespoons of freshly shredded ginger, about 3 tablespoons freshly ground dried ancho chile peppers, two granny smith apples --shredded, and about a half cup of mayo. It was delicious. I have no idea how the original recipe was, but what I made went perfectly with the grilled pork tenderloin that I made. I put this salad (more of a slaw after it was shredded) right on the pork tenderloin sandwiches. OMG. It was delicious!

I like this salad alot! It is super crunchy and uses very little ingredients! The leftovers last and because there is no lettuce - it doesn't wilt. The Jicama does not turn brown after exposed to the air. Very nice and light!
