  1. First time using jicama, I was pleasantly surprised! Tastes a little like a radish, but sweeter. I substituted mozzarella for the feta because itโ€™s what I had on hand, and used basil in place of mint. I finished it with a much needed drizzle of balsamic glaze. Even my 4 year old ate the cucumber and watermelon out of it!ย 

  2. You can readily find jicama in any produce department. It is slightly sweet and crunchy. Don’t leave it out, it is the star of the salad.

  3. This is one of my favorite summer salads and I love the addition of another favorite, jicama! We use basil and mint, and I discovered a great orange Muscat vinegar at trader joes that is perfect with this (in place of the lime juice) . You could easily go without the oil even. Thanks Gina, love this.ย 

  4. How well does this hold up? I’m thinking of making it and bringing on weekend camping trip. Would it be good to wait to add dressing/mint/feta until right before serving?

  5. Looks great! Can I use kohlarbi instead of jicama, what do you think? I’ve never taste jicama but it looks similar ๐Ÿ˜‰ and I have kohlarbi in my garden ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Sounds AMAZING to me! But suggestions for a watermelon substitute? My partner strangely doesn’t like watermelon…

  7. Looks so good! Any suggestions for an alternative cheese? My husband thinks feta tastes like feet….

  8. Thanks for posting this. It inspired my supper salad with tomatoes instead of jicama because that was what I had. Very good.
