Yield: Serves 6

The vibrant flavors of lime and fresh cilantro underscore the juxtaposition of jicama and tart green apples.


  • 2 medium jicamas
  • 2 tart green apples, such as Granny Smith
  • Juice of 3 limes
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise, preferably homemade
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar


1. Peel the jicamas and the apples and cut them into julienne strips. Combine the strips in a mixing bowl and sprinkle with the juice of 2 limes. Toss to coat and refrigerate until chilled.
2. When chilled, season the mixture with salt and pepper. Add the cilantro and toss gently. Transfer to an attractive serving plate. In a small bowl, blend together the mayonnaise, sugar, and the juice of the remaining lime. Mix thoroughly and pour over the jicamas and apples. Serve immediately.
