Jicama was on sale this weekend so I picked one up. Never had it and not sure what to do with it. I found a couple of recipes that look interesting, including the one above. Neverhad watercress either so I figure I could do a double-duty experiment! :) Problem is, I have found reviews of the recipe but can't find the recipe itself. It doesn't appear to be in the recipe finder. If anyone has it and could post it, I'd appreciate it. Thanks!
