Jicama (also known as Yambean) makes a great base for a salad. It is slightly sweet and slightly crunchy and it can go in so many ways - savory, sweet, spicy or even tart. Cut it into sticks and serve it with other fresh veggies and dip at your parties - one cup has only 46 calories and a whopping 6 grams of fiber.
