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
  • 3/4 cup cooked black beans, drained
  • 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
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt; more to taste


In a food processor or blender, purée 1/2 cup of the diced mango until smooth. In a serving bowl, combine the remaining diced mango, the jicama, beans, jalapeno, mint, onion, lime juice and vinegar. Gently stir in the mango purée. Season with salt. Let stand for 20 minutes before serving.
