Expert Tips

The sweet, nutty flavor of jicama adds a delightful crunch to this salad. Peel the skin with a potato peeler or paring knife before cutting the crisp, white flesh.

You can easily substitute the frozen corn in this recipe with canned corn. Check the serving size on the labels to make sure you purchase enough for 3 cups.
