This salad is great without vegetable oil, too!  I have also substituted turnips for jicama (since they are also white, sweet, and crunchy) and I can grow them in a garden.

We have made this recipe many time we love it, but we left out the honey and the olive oil and insted we added some chilli powder and the kids love it.

Oh my! This is now a favourite salad! Will make this again.

Jicama is often one of the vegetable snacks students get during the school day as part of the Fresh Fruit & Vegetable Program (FFVP). So, I made this recipe in my cooking & nutrition ed classes to show one way jicama can be used in a recipe. Kids really enjoyed it!
Cilantro is a great addition to this recipe as well.

Carrot, jicama and orange salad is a great salad, so refreshing and great on summer days. The carrot and jicama is so crunchy and sweet and then you add the orange and it is even sweeter. I have used this recipe with many different groups and most really enjoy it. Lately the children have been really enjoying it with a sprinkle of tajin on top.
