  1. This was so delicious. I halved the recipe added a chopped red bell pepper for color a little red wine vinegar to the red onions to mellow them and a tablespoon of Rooster Sriracha Sauce (organic from Whole Foods) to give it a kick.
  2. I'm not a fan of mango so I removed it and added a fresh jalapeno diced up! It turned out so yummy! It was the first time I had jicama this way and my boyfriend loved it too!
  3. Wonderful. I added sweet red pepper and black beans - for color.
  4. I had eaten Jicama before but never new what to do with it. I love this recipe. I Julianne the Jicama rather than chopped it. Next time I think I will chop it and make all of the piece about the same size. Great if you are watching your calories 2 cups of this stuff - Read more ...

  6. I have to agree with previous reviewers. Without a little heat it's so-so. After adding a jalapeno (finely diced) it was a 5-star make-again recipe.

  7. This was a really good salad. I think a little jalapeno would be and excellent addition. It was crunchy and very tasty. I will definately make this one again.
  8. Salad??? This would be an excellent relish to top chicken or fish. It would be great as a salsa for tortilla chips (if you add a jalapeno) but it just isn't a very good SALAD. It doesn't seem complete on its own.
  9. This recipe made enough for probably 12 not 8! It came out so-so; was much better the next day topped with Dungeness crabmeat moistened with wasabi mayonaise.
