In a large skillet cook and stir shallots and garlic in margarine or butter until shallots are tender but not brown. Stir in broccoli, jicama, carrots, rosemary, water, and salt; bring to boiling. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer about 6 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender.
Meanwhile, heat salsa in a small pan. Transfer vegetables to a serving bowl with a slotted spoon. Spoon salsa over vegetables. Makes 12 servings.
