Jicama is a white, starchy root that thrives in tropical regions. In addition to providing your salads with a tasty crunch, jicama can also provide your diet with healthy doses of Vitamin C, iron, calcium and phosphorus. The nutrients in jicama promote heart health and weight loss all while lowering your cholesterol and giving your immune system a boost.*
For a fresh salad idea, add one cup of equal parts: chopped mango, strawberry and jicama into a bowl. Squeeze three tablespoons of fresh lime juice and top with some freshly chopped cilantro. Gently mix all of the ingredients together, serve and enjoy!
