Gingered Buffalo Burgers with Jicama

Gingered Buffalo Burgers with Jicama

Diced jicama melds with lime juice, red pepper and cilantro for a bright and crunchy note atop this unconventional burger.

Jicama, big on nutrition and low on calories, can be found in most supermarkets. Look for a very firm example with no soft spots or wrinkles.
