This crunchy and tasty salad is best made with a good vegetable shredder called a mandolin. If you don't have a mandolin but want to buy one, try your local Asian food supermarket. Almost all Korean supermarkets carry an excellent one for around twenty-five dollars.
Jicama is a white-fleshed root vegetable that is a good source of vitamin C. It adds a great crunchy component to salads.
