Jicama Confetti Salad

This lovely salad is a crunchy and refreshing blend of jicama and colorful fresh vegetables that will light up a simple dinner. Jicama is a crunchy, slightly juicy vegetable that tastes like a cross between an apple and a raw potato. It is native to Mexico, and it is also prominent in Asian cuisine. It's just really tasty, to me!
