    Oh I love Jicama and I always forget about it. Usually I just squeeze fresh lime juice on it and sprinkle it with chile powder.
    This recipe is so fresh tasting. Thank you.

  • I love Jicama, but I'd rather just toss it with lime and sprinkle with chili powder. This one just didn't hit the spot. Was good, but not worth the extra work to me. - 12/20/10
