Last Fall, I (Dave) went to a conference for work at Disneyland Hotel (rough…I know). The food that the hotel served was so incredibly good. It was better than any catered food I had ever had before. One of the meals they served was a Mexican-style meal, and it helped to inspire the food we served for the party. They served a salad with jicama in it, and that was my first time ever eating jicama. If you have not had it before, it is a cool and crunchy root vegetable with a mild taste. We added some jicama to the salad we served and it was the mystery ingredient of the night. We had about 10 people ask us what the “crunchy white stuff” was in the salad.
The jicama, along with the other ingredients, made for a pretty amazing salad! It was crisp with bright and fresh flavors and was the perfect salad for a Mexican-style meal.
