  • Sometimes called Mexican potato. It looks something like a cross between a potato and a turnip, with a thin brown skin, a round, turnip-like form and tail, and smooth white flesh. Jicama can be found in the produce section of most specialty markets and supermarkets.

In a large bowl, combine cabbage, radicchio, jicama, bell pepper, onion, and carrot. Add basil and mint. Sprinkle with coarse salt and pepper.

In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise, rice vinegar, and sesame oil; pour over the salad mixture and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate approximately 1 hour before serving. To serve, toss salad again
