Miki's Jicama (Pico de Gallo Salsa)

Rating: 5 stars 19
A great 'salsa' NOT BLENDED! Chunky, crisp, and yummy! Buy some freezer containers, this recipe makes A LOT, or share with friends. I once could not find white balsamic vinegar and used the dark without any problems. Freezes well.

Summer Cucumber Jicama Salad

Rating: 5 stars 11
This is a really great cucumber salad that's light and flavorful and makes a great starter! Tastes fine as it is, but can be salted and peppered to taste, if desired. Just remember to add all ingredients and mix before adding in the tomatoes, as they are extremely delicate and do not withstand stirring very well once they are cut.

Refreshing Sweet and Spicy Jicama Salad (Vegan)

Rating: 4.5 stars 26
I made this as a side dish with some grilled basil chicken and spicy Italian chicken sausages; it was perfect! If you don't like spicy food, just cut back on the Thai chiles. My boyfriend and I loved it!

Jicama Tortillas

Rating: 3 stars 2
Delicious low-carb tortillas for tacos and enchiladas made with jicama. You can eat them raw for a crispy texture or steam them if you like a softer tortilla. These are grain-free tortillas that are keto and vegan friendly.

Shrimp, Jicama and Chile Vinegar Salad

Jicama Zebra Fries

Rating: 4 stars 11
Ever wonder what to do when you have too much jicama? Here's a quick guide to making a quick snack. Best served with barbeque sauce. The stripes on the fries are caused by the moisture escaping the jicama and creating fissures where the starch from the jicama collects and browns.

Root Vegetable Bake

Rating: 4.5 stars 31
Vegetable mix baked to perfection. I go through phases of wanting just vegetables for a main dish. My mom gave me this recipe and she got it from a friend. It's simple to do; peel and cut the vegetables and put them in a casserole dish.

This vegetable banh mi for two stars quick-pickled vegetables and portobello mushrooms sauteed with fish sauce, sriracha, and five-spice. If you omit the fish sauce it's vegetarian.

Change things up by making hash browns with jicama instead of potato.

Apple Jicama Coleslaw

Rating: 4.5 stars 45
This crispy, crunchy, and extremely refreshing coleslaw recipe features an under-utilized vegetable found in almost every large American grocery store's produce section. I'm talking about jicama.

Black Bean, Corn, and Tomato Salad with Feta Cheese

Rating: 4.5 stars 136
I tasted many salads with similar ingredients, but all seemed very bland, so I developed this myself. It is dressed with a lime vinaigrette and has lots of crunch and flavor with a little jalapeno pop. It's wonderful to make in summer with fresh ingredients from the garden or farmer's market. This is great with BBQ's or for potlucks. My husband likes it best with fish tacos.

The Best Vegetable Salad
Rating: 4.5 stars 13

This is a refreshing salad using all different kinds of vegetables. You can use whatever you like, but the main things that makes it good are the tomatoes and cucumbers. It is much like an Israeli salad. The homemade dressing is very good on it, but so is just plain olive oil.
