Jicama, also known as yam bean, is a tuber with a fresh, crisp, apple-like quality. It works well in salads, but also makes a refreshing snack simply seasoned with lime juice, ancho chilli powder and salt.
Note Jicama is available from Asian grocers. Ancho chilli powder is available from Monterey Mexican Foods.
