Jicama And Sweet Red Pepper Salad |  Vegetable/Fruit Day

Jicama is a large root vegetable with a crunchy texture (like water chestnuts) and a sweet and nutty taste. One of its greatest attributes is that when marinated, jicama readily accepts the flavors of the marinade, which gives it an added dimension. Jimaca can usually be found in the produce/vegetable section of the grocery store.
