Miki's Jicama (Pico de Gallo Salsa)

Recipe by  

"A great 'salsa' NOT BLENDED! Chunky, crisp, and yummy! Buy some freezer containers, this recipe makes A LOT, or share with friends. I once could not find white balsamic vinegar and used the dark without any problems. Freezes well."

Lasts several weeks in the fridge. Could not find White Balsamic Vinegar, had to use dark, tasted fine, maybe not as pretty though.

I didn't have white balsamic vinegar so I just omitted it...it still turned out great! Love the crunch of the jicama!

I really liked this recipe. I made 1/4 of recipe as i did not need too much. Still had left overs from side dish. I served with grilled chicken but would be great with tilapia or fish tacos. I am from texas so added more jalapenos but only because they are mild now in winter. Also added another tomatoe (4 if it was full recipe). Might have been size of romas though. I think the fine dicing is critically important. Am thinking of adding cabbage to this recipe and serving as slaw with some additional tweaks. Very good and a bit different than the norm

This is a fantastic pico de gallo! The Jicama stays crunchy forever, and absorbs the flavors of the other ingredients. I make half the recipe, for my family of 10, and serve it up in place of "jar salsa" when we have "make your own taco" night. Everyone loves it, and I hardly ever have leftovers. Everyone consumes the rest by scooping tortilla chips in the bowl! Although there is a lot of chopping, the final product is worth every bit of it.
