We use jicama and bok choy in salads almost every day. Just peel the
jicama and slice it into strips or small pieces of any shape. It's
wonderfully crunchy with a mild taste. I believe it can also be
cooked,like potatoes, but we love it raw.
Bok choy is a kind of cabbabe, I believe, and is full of nutrients. We try
to use as much of the dark green leaf part as possible because it is
loades with nutrients.
Cilantro, as far as I know, is a seasoning (herb?) and can be used in the
same way as one would use parsley.
