Jicama is a tuber used in Asian and Mexican dishes with a taste that sits somewhere between an apple or Asian pear and a radish. It has a firm, crunchy texture that holds well in a slaw. This slaw would go very well with grilled seafood.
Note Jicama, also known as yam bean, is available from Asian grocers.
