"This was a little bit of an experiment, and turned out getting rave reviews. I will try to be as close to amounts as possible, but I did add more to taste in some cases. I think that is the beauty of this, you can make it how you like it!"

Excellent, very close to what I had in Mexico, can use regular oranges also, everyone loved it at the party.
This is a good BASE recipe. I added the chili powder after I made it at one other reviewer's suggestion to help. I probably won't make it again because no one in my family loved it. The kids (jicama fans) would not touch it after one bite. They actually asked if they could just eat the brussel sprouts on their plates instead. It was a weird moment.
I am new to jicama. This is so fresh and tasty that I will be preparing it a lot. I used a fresh orange and added a sweet red bell pepper. I also added 2 TBS of orange marmalade and the zest from the lime and the orange. No salt and no pepper. This is great as a salad, a snack and also tasty over fish or chicken or pork. I think the word "slaw" probably turns cooks away from trying this. I'm sure glad I did try it. Thanks for sharing. Also, the nice thing about the jicama is that it doesn't turn brown, just stays nice and white!
As it is, tasty and refreshing. I used a regular orange as I had one of those in the fridge. The saltiness was a nice counter to the sweet and sour . I love chili powder on my jicama so I sprinkled a bit on the salad. I liked it even better with that on it!
This is just awesome!! My first time using jicama and I wasn't sure what to do with it -- except have it with dip. Then I found this recipe and I'm glad I did! I did add lemon and lime zests and I used "no sugar added" mandarin oranges and used all of the liquid from the can. I only had dried cilantro -- I used about a Tbsp and a half or so. Very yummy! :D
How did this have 3.5 stars when it only has 1 review that gives it 5 stars? I haven't tried it but am giving 5 just because I almost didn't look at it because it only had 3.5
This has a really bright taste to it and was wonderful!
I have made this a couple times and it gets rave reviews. Instead of chopping the jicama, I put in my my food processor and shred it. It may be a little more work, but it makes a lot more salad!
