Jicama is a crispy, sweet edible root that belongs in the legume and bean family. It’s high in vitamin C, low in sodium and non-fat. Jicama can be stored for up to two weeks in a plastic bag in the fridge.
In a skillet add some non-stick cooking spray over medium heat. Add onion and sauté until translucent.
Mix the jicama, pomegranate seeds, mandarin oranges, sautéed onion, cilantro and mint in a bowl.
In a small bowl, whisk together (or use a blender) maple syrup and lime juice.
Pour dressing over the salad and toss until jicama is well-coated.
Chill at least 20 minutes before serving.
