Jícama Salad with Oranges and Watercress

Jicama salad with oranges and watercress

This colorful and crunchy jícama salad is a perfect way to dress up a fall harvest or holiday meal. It’s the perfect light salad for a lovely vegan Thanksgiving dinner menu! Jícama (pronounced HIC-uh-ma), once confined to the southwest, has recently become far easier to find in produce sections everywhere, especially in the fall. If you can’t find jicama, use a large, crisp turnip. Photos by Hannah Kaminsky.
