Note: You will have the best texture if, when grating the jicama and the carrot, you drag them slowly along the grater so they come out in longish strips instead of little chips. Try this salsa with heavier-flavored grilled fish, such as tuna, bluefish or mackerel. From “Salsas, Sambals, Chutneys & Chowchows.”
