Serious Eats Suzanne Lehrer Post a comment

A win-win for a make-ahead salad is killing two recipes with one marinade. A simple citrus-soy dressing doubles as a marinade for the steak. If you're new to jicama, and couldn't pick it out of a veggie lineup, it's starchy, sweet and unfailingly crunchy. More

I first encountered jicama as a topping for great tacos. I was floored by the taste and texture—it had the crunch of an apple but none of the sweetness. Since I had a lot leftover, I wanted to see what else it could do. More
