Actually, no, it doesn't take that long, and I do it by hand... I guess it just depends on how efficient you are in the kitchen :) They don't have to be perfect matchsticks! I think the general concensus around here is not to rate things you haven't actually made, but thanks for the feedback. Read More

Made it for dinner tonight. Hate to be the only one who rates it less than 5 stars but we thought that it was just OK. I probably won't make this again. Read More

I have made this about 5 times without changes and it is a terrific recipe. Everyone who has eaten it has asked for the recipe. Trader Joe's sells mango and jicama spears that make the preparation really easy. Read More

Great recipe! I included fresh jalepeno since I like the heat. Also, for those concerned about the raw onions, you can reduce the effect by cutting to a very small dice instead of matchsticks, and soak it in the dressing while you cut the other ingredients so it loses some of the raw bite.

I made this yesterday and it was wonderful. Ordinarily my husband detests mango and this kind of food but we ate nearly the whole salad between us. The very little left over will go into fish tacos for today's lunch. Unfortunately my jicama proved to be rotten internally but I substituted carrot with great success. I served the salad with jerk pork tenderloin and a hot black bean casserole. I can't wait to serve this salad to guests. I hope that I can find more recipes from this same source. Read More

I loved this salad so fresh and tasty with just the right amount of hot punch. First time I ate jicama too will make it again adding some apples and cucumbers. Read More

Made this last night for dinner and my Husband and I loved it. Great crunch and very fresh and tangy. Served it with cold colossal shrimp and it was the perfect light dinner for a hot summer evening. Will be making this all summer! Read More

I went to Trader Joe's to get their Jicama Mango Slaw, only to learn they have discontinued it...so I looked up this recipe quickly and got the ingredients while still at the store. Except this recipe is way better than theirs! Only change I made was to also add some shredded cabbage, to make it a little more slaw-ish. I plan to serve it with shredded pork tacos (carnitas) and think it will be a great compliment, whether on the side, or in the taco. Read More

I served this with fish tacos last night. My family hadn't had jimica before. My son described it as 'apple meets celery.' Having the mango jimica jalapeno and lime together was a great flavor. The salad kept really well overnight. Read More
