Jicama Slaw with Honey Lime Vinaigrette

Salad, Side Dishes | June 24, 2008 | By

I made this delicious jicama slaw the other day as a side salad. It was so hot outside that I wanted something simple to prepare and something that would be refreshing and bright. This was definitely it! The jicama has a nice firm crunch that soaks up all of the honey lime vinaigrette making this a flavor profile that is unbelievable!

Jicama Slaw

1 large peeled and finely shredded jicama
1 cup of shredded carrot
1 cup of shredded cucumber
1/2 cup of chopped cilantro

Honey Lime Vinaigrette

1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
1 tablespoon chopped Jalapeno pepper
1 tablespoon honey
1/2 cup canola oil
salt and pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients for the slaw in a bowl. In a separate bowl prepare vinaigrette by combining all of the ingredients and whisking until emulsified. Pour over jicama, chill for an hour. Enjoy.
