Happy Fourth of July! Sorry I’m getting this lovely recipe too late for you to take to your party, but the inspiration hit just last night. I was so excited I found the jicama at the first store I went to last night. This is an amzing light and fresh salad that is low in calories. Great to take to a potluck or picnic!
