That also means a good lunch beforehand. At lunch, we like to add Jicama to our salad. It's such a unique and tasty surprise in a salad. Don't know what a Jicama is? Here's what one looks like.
They resemble a yam or potato, in that it is a root vegetable. Apparently, these also grow beans on the vine but I have never tried a Jicama bean. The outside is brownish, with a crisp white inside. The skin is interesting because you can peel it off, similar to bark on a tree. I like to peel it, and then run it through the food processor to get shredded pieces, which are awesome to top a salad. I also run carrots through and always have shredded carrots available.
