This was just ok; I enjoy the texture of jicama but I don't think this was worth all of the work julienning the vegetables. If I make this again I'll just shred them with my food processor. I served this with CL Fish Tacos (Dec. 2006) and sauteed plantains.
This salad on its own is not overly exciting, but it has good flavor, great texture, and makes an excellent complement to spicier dishes, like enchiladas. We've also enjoyed it with the Black Bean and Tomato Soup with Cilantro-Lime Cream.
Very good salad, fresh and light. Although I don't own the particular kitchen tool indicated, I just julienned everything with a knife. Not hard. Although it's very simple, I'm giving it a top rating because it's so perfect with heavy Mexican entrees like enchiladas or chiles rellenos. I served this with the excellent CL chiles rellenos gratin and rice.
