- The recipe says to serve immediately, or cover and refrigerate up to 6 hours. What happens after 6 hours? I don't know, but I'll find out soon because I didn't eat this all, and I plan to have some tomorrow. I'll let you know the results of this daring experiment soon!
- The onion is kind of strong in this, but I love red onion. Just beware though that it can have an adverse effect on your breath. Consider this your warning.
- I enjoyed this simple preparation of jicama, but next time I'm ready for more- traditionally it is paired with chili powder, so I think I'll incorporate that into my next jicama outing.
