The slightly sweet, nutty flavor of jicama—a round root vegetable with thin brown skin and white crunchy flesh—is delicious in this quick, Italian-style slaw recipe. Peel the jicama with a knife or vegetable peeler, making sure to remove both the papery skin and the layer of fibrous flesh just underneath.
