Cilantro Jicama Slaw recipe

Jicama is a strange and delicious vegetable that meets somewhere between a potato and an apple -- sweet, crunchy, and very mild. Traditionally served in Mexican cuisine, jicama gets shredded with cabbage and carrots for a colorful summer slaw. A tangy lime dressing and lots of cilantro pack this salad full of flavor.


1 large jicama, peeled and cut into very thin matchsticks, or shredded
1 cup shredded green cabbage
1 cup shredded carrots
½ cup chopped fresh cilantro
3 tablespoons olive oil
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon red wine or apple cider vinegar
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper


Combine jicama, cabbage, carrots, and cilantro in a large bowl.

In a separate bowl, whisk together oil, lime juice, honey, vinegar, salt, and pepper. Pour over vegetables and toss to coat. Serve immediately or chill for flavors to develop.
