Jicama, Mango and Red Onion Salad
A delicious and simple salad with only a few ingredients Jicama, Mango and Red Onion. Better tasting if made a day ahead, and using a very fresh and crunchy Jicama, and almost green/hard mangoes.
If you haven`t tried a jicama yet, I will say it is a hybrid between a raw potato and a chayote or a guinea arrowroot (lerenes). It has no specific flavor at all, and can be easily use in any dish cooked or raw, like in this salad.
This is how a jicama looks like, and you can find it in all Latinos markets at a very low price.
