Jicama Salad With Mango, Avocado & Savory Ranch Dressing

Jicama is a tropical root vegetable. It looks like a turnip on steroids, with a diameter that ranges from 4 to 8 inches, hefty weight, and a light beige skin tone. It has a refreshing, clean flavor – a cross between celery and an apple – and a sturdy, crisp texture. It’s widely available at grocery stores and is a wonderfully versatile salad ingredient.
