This is a very easy, very nice snack. I made this and served it with fat free sour cream for dipping as a TV snack. Hubby and I both enjoyed the taste and thought it was a welcome change from chips and other high fat things we are trying to stay away from. Thanks for a great idea Miss Annie!

I really liked this! I wanted to do something with my jicama other than just slicing and snarfing, and this was a great idea. I like the touch of salt in this that made it different than another recipe I looked at. I just threw all this into a lidded bowl and shook it. I wanted more a dessert snack, so I sprinkled with a bit of Splenda and shook it again, and it was wonderful. Thanks for sharing something I would have never thought of on my own.

Wonderful addition to an appetizer table! I quartered some oranges and added those to the plate as well. Using about a tablespoon of kosher salt and 1 teaspoon of chili powder, I generously sprinkled the whole shebang after hitting it all with fresh lime juice. Everyone loved it especially those who had never eaten jicama before. I'm thinking that next time I will add a pinch or 2 of cayenne pepper with the chili salt. Thanks for the idea! Can't wait to make it again!

This was very good, and something I never would have thought to make on my own. The only change I made was to add the zest of the lime as well. I served this as a side dish to Texas chili Chili (Real Texas Chili).

Well, I didn't chill these & should have. But they were delicious anyway. 5yo loved them! I thought they tasted like margaritas with the lime & salt, lol. Nice refreshing CRUNCH. Great snack food!

I tried this years ago at Whole Foods Market (then it was Bread and Circus) when they were trying to promote jicima. It's really good, and a nice flavorful appetizer to offer next to the fattening stuff. I make it a lot!
