This recipe is inspired by a dish I ate a lot when I visited Costa Rica. It’s a play on Ceviche, minus the fish, plus more veggies. It’s bright from the lime juice, texturally so satisfying, and absolutely bursting with tropical flavors. I’m also so excited to be sharing a recipe that features Jicama. If you’re not familiar with it, Jicama is a delicious root vegetable with a juicy and crunchy flesh. It was originally grown in Mexico, but is now found across South America and parts of Asia. It tastes like a cross between an apple and a potato and is incredibly nutritious (high in fiber and water, low in calories, and contains an impressive amount of important vitamins and minerals). It’s an amazing vegetable and I’m really hoping you’ll try it!
Note: you can find Jicama at most grocery stores. Whole Foods, Wegmans, Publix, and Sprouts all sell whole Jicama roots and Trader Joe’s sells pre-sliced and peeled jicama.
