Apple Jicama Salad

Apple Jicama Salad

Jicama or “Singkamas” is similar to a turnip in shape and texture but has a mild, sweet taste.  In the Philippines, Jicamas are usually a summer treat.  Juicy and crunchy, this tuberous root is eaten on it’s own or dipped in salt,  seasoned vinegar, or shrimp paste.  In the US, Jicamas are not commonly used but readily available  in grocery stores.  With summer approaching, I created an Apple Jicama Salad.  A crunchy, juicy, citrusy, mint infused cool summer salad.  I wanted something light and crunchy to eat without feeling guilty of high caloric content and the result was delicious. Useful tip if you are going to make this recipe:  The smaller the Jicama and Apple cubes, the better!
