This crunchy, juicy vegetable is ideal for pairing with a zesty dip.


  • ½ cup reduced-fat sour cream

  • Zest and juice of 1 lime

  • ½ teaspoon chili powder

  • 2 scallions, finely chopped, plus more, thinly sliced for garnish, if desired

  • Coarse salt and ground pepper

  • 1 ½ pounds jicama (1 medium), cut into sticks


  1. In a small bowl, place sour cream, lime zest and juice, chili powder, and chopped scallions. Season with salt and pepper; mix to combine. Transfer to serving dish, and garnish with sliced scallions, if desired. Serve with jicama sticks.

Cook's Notes

Before you start cutting, peel jicama with a vegetable peeler, and then halve from the top to bottom (a serrated knife works best). To make sticks, slice jicama halves 1/2 inch thick; lay slices flat and cut into 1/2-inch-thick sticks.
