I LOVE jicama. It's especially good in salads. It's a root vegetable that has a sweet tang. I'm not going to lie. When you pick it up at the grocery store - it's pretty darn ugly. But once you cut away the outer layer - that sweet, delicious veggie comes to life.
I often slice the jicama in half and then make jicama 'chips' as a snack. My kids LOVE them!! I serve them with salad dressing or sometimes with a little honey. My kids will eat them plain too - a delicious, nutritious snack!
