If you're looking for a scrumptious seasonal salad to add to your holiday table, try this Thai Jicama Salad Recipe! Jicama ('Man Kaeo' in Thai) is a delicious vegetable grown in Mexico as well as in Southeast Asia.  It features a deliciously crisp texture that tastes like a cross between a vegetable and a fruit (see: Jicama Facts & picture.) If can't find jicama at your local supermarket, green apple makes a good substitution. This salad also includes nuts (peanuts, cashews, or slivered almonds all work well) and cranberries for a festive touch, but in Asia you'd be more likely to find pomegranate, so feel free to choose whichever one you'd prefer. Anyway you toss it, this Thai salad is very delicious and makes a beautiful addition to any holiday menu. Happy Holidays! (photo by D.Schmidt)
