Jicama Mandarin Orange Salad



Jicama Mandarin Orange Salad

Refreshing Jicama Salad. Easy to make and this cools the palate if you are eating spicy food like our Camarones Diabla. This jicama citrus salad from the Yucatan is known as “Xec” or “Xe’ec”, which comes from the Mayan word for “Ensalada” (salad). It is also known by other names, like “check” and “sheck”. It is a healthy, quick, and easy to prepare dish, and is a classic side dish during the Day of the Dead.
