Jicama (pronounced HEE-kah-mah) is a big, beige, roundish tuber with a tough skin and a sweet, crisp, almost apple-like flavor. Look for it in the produce section.
- 1 1/2 cups diced mango, divided
- 3/4 cup diced jicama

- 1 teaspoon finely chopped jalapeno
- 2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh mint
- 1/3 cup finely chopped red onion
- 2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
- 2 teaspoons rice vinegar
