Jicama and Apple Slaw

Serve this colourful, crisp and fresh Jicama and Apple Slaw with grilled chicken or fish. Jicama has crunchy texture and mild sweet nutty flavour.

When buying jicama choose ones that are smaller in size because as they get bigger, they lose flavour and that wonderful crunchy texture.


1 small jicama, julienned
1 apple, such as granny smith, julienned
1 small carrot, julienned
2 radishes, thinly sliced
1/2 small red onion, sliced
1/2 small cucumber, cut in half and sliced

Lime Dressing
Juice of 2 limes
1 tsp. to 2 tsp. grated ginger
1 tbsp. honey
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tbsp. chopped chives
Pinch of ground cumin
Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste


Add jicama, apple, carrot, radishes, onion and cucumber to large bowl.

To make the dressing: add lime juice, ginger, honey, olive oil, chives, cumin and salt and pepper to small bowl. Whisk to combine.
