This was a little bit of an experiment, and turned out getting rave reviews. I will try to be as close to amounts as possible, but I did add more to taste in some cases. I think that is the beauty of this, you can make it how you like it!

Excellent, very close to what I had in Mexico, can use regular oranges also, everyone loved it at the party.




I am new to jicama. This is so fresh and tasty that I will be preparing it a lot. I used a fresh orange and added a sweet red bell pepper. I also added 2 TBS of orange marmalade and the zest from the lime and the orange. No salt and no pepper. This is great as a salad, a snack and also tasty over fish or chicken or pork. I think the word "slaw" probably turns cooks away from trying this. I'm sure glad I did try it. Thanks for sharing. Also, the nice thing about the jicama is that it doesn't turn brown, just stays nice and white!




As it is, tasty and refreshing. I used a regular orange as I had one of those in the fridge. The saltiness was a nice counter to the sweet and sour . I love chili powder on my jicama so I sprinkled a bit on the salad. I liked it even better with that on it!
