First time I've ever had jicama, and I wasn't too crazy about it. Its crunchiness is nice, but it's also a bit slimy (for lack of a better word) and really doesn't have much flavor, if any. I don't think it adds anything to the salad, and I would omit in the future, particularly considering it was expensive. IMHO, what really makes this salad unusual is the grapefruit. I served this with the recommended Habanero Heat Salad Dressing which was a good complement.

This recipe is good as is. I must however disagree with a comment that jicama was "slimy"- Jicama is crunchy and watery- if it's slimy it must've not been fresh. An easy alternative to jicama can be a green mango (NOT ripe and sweet). It will offer the same crunchiness but with a bit of tartness at the same time. Second alternative can be to use pineapple. NOT from a can but freshly cut. Thanks for the recipe.

Outstanding! A delicious mix of flavors, colors, and textures. We used already-cut-up grapefruit segments from the refrigerator case at the grocery store, and substituted cherry/grape tomatoes for the chopped tomato. The dressing I used was a raspberry vinaigrette, but I think it would be great with a poppy seed dressing as well.
