This Jicama Salad with Asian Vinaigrette is a fresh and crunchy salad perfect any time! It is loaded with vegetables and sweet mandarin oranges.
Lighten up for summer with this cool Jicama Salad with a tasty Asian Vinaigrette. I'm so in the mood for lighter recipes now that summer has started to arrive. We tend to grill out a lot and I like simple recipes to compliment the main course.
I'm sure some of you have heard of this vegetable but for those that haven't, Jicama is a crispy, sweet, edible tuber that resembles a turnip in physical appearance, although the plants are not related.
How's that for a definition? I didn't make that up but it can be found at this link if you want to learn more. All you really need to know is this is one fantastic recipe!
I love the crunch it adds to salads and have it be a new added addition to your veggie platter - the other veggies will thank you!
