What do you put on a Mexican board?

Fruit Options: I always like to use the most popular fresh fruit especially since the cups are limited by space. Some options are berries, grapes, melon or apples. But be sure to add apples right before serving so that they do not get brown.

Vegetable Options: Vegetables always add in a nice healthy variety and balance from all the hearty meats, cheeses and nuts. I usually keep mine simple with some sliced cucumbers, baby carrots, grape tomatoes, olives or pickles.

Carb Options: Every good charcuterie needs some carbs involved! You could keep it simple with some crackers, bagel chips, toasted bread, or small breadsticks. I use gluten free options so that it’s great for everybody and most people won’t know the difference.

How Do You Eat Jicama?

There are lots of ways to enjoy jicama that are healthy organic solutions in your daily diet. You can slice jicama into thin strips and eat it as a snack. You can also grate or chop it into salads. It can also be put into stir fry dishes, baked in casseroles, and even makes outstanding coleslaw! If you haven’t thought to add this into soups and stews, jicama adds a whole new layer of flavor that you’ll enjoy right away.

Jicama can be grilled, baked, roasted, steamed, and fried, and not to forget that it still retains a significant crunch if you don’t overcook it! It also pairs great with other rooty buddies like the Jerusalem Artichokes. This is another root that is completely edible and is related to the sunflower and is sometimes called a sunchoke.
