This recipe is a fun way for children to explore herbs such as mint or cilantro, and an introduction to “kitchen tools,” such as a lemon-lime squeezer for children to squeeze the lime.  It’s also an opportunity to introduce children to jicama, a mild-tasting Mexican root vegetable. Children and adults enjoy this easy and refreshing salsa.
