Combine 3 tablespoons each lime juice and finely chopped dates or currants and 2 tablespoons vegetable oil in a large bowl; let stand 10 minutes. Cut 1 medium carrot and 1 pound peeled jicama into matchsticks. Add the vegetables to the date mixture, season with salt and toss to coat. Stir in some torn mint.
