Jicama is a root vegetable that has thick, brown skin. It is also called Mexican yam bean or Mexican Turnip. Jicama has a mild, sweet, nutty flavor, perfect for pairing with mango. Mango tastes like peach and pineapple, while jicama is a cross between a potato, apple, pear, and water chestnut.
To make the Vegan Jicama Slaw, julienne the jicama and mango. Julienne is a French culinary term for cutting vegetables or fruits into thin strips. Next, we added shredded cabbage, thinly sliced onions, and a tart yet sweet mango dressing to bring the salad together.
