Carrot and Jicama Salad

Jicama is a root vegetable and it’s loaded with Vitamin C, has low sodium, no fat, and it’s kidney-friendly. It’s deliciously crunchy, somewhat like the Chinese water chestnut. Are you starting to warm up to jicama? Good! Because Betty from California has a terrific Carrot & Jicama Salad that really takes care of that urge to crunch on something.
