Jicama (HEE-kah-mah) has a crisp, crunchy texture and a slightly sweet flavor. Shredded or diced jicama is often added to salad.
Prepare this salad in advance, cover and refrigerate it for several hours. Just before serving, check to make sure the salad is creamy. Stir in 1 to 2 tablespoons of milk if the salad seems dry.
