The jicama-green apple salad at Grace 17.20 is my favorite. Light, refreshing, it’s perfect for summer. Will they share the recipe? — Amber Miller, Alpharetta

Pete Washburn, chief operating officer of Grace 17.20, says this salad is one of their most popular sides. The light vinaigrette is delicious and there’s just enough to dress the apples and jicama and keep them from turning brown.

Note that the proportion of apple to jicama may vary according to the size of the apples and jicama you purchase. Ideally, you’d end up with a ratio of four parts apple to one part jicama. And a note to our readers: We had great trouble sourcing a jicama these past few weeks to use when testing this recipe. World wide jicama shortage? We ended up testing it with sliced celery instead of the jicama. Just as crunchy and turned out to be delicious. That dressing would be tasty on almost everything.
