Jicama Summer Slaw

Jicama (Hi-ku-mah) – root vegetable that is juicy and crunchy, with a slightly sweet and nutty flavor. Tastes like a cross between a potato and a pear… And it’s an excellent source of fiber and vitamin C!

Why I love it: Jicama is super versatile and found at most grocery stores. Can be eaten raw as a snack, in salads, or cooked in stir fry. This jicama slaw has the fresh taste of summer with cilantro and a crisp mix of veggies.


Yields: 6-8 servings

  • 2 medium jicama (about the size of a potato), peeled and julienned
  • 1 cup red cabbage, julienned
  • 2-3 small radishes, peel ON and julienned
  • 1 large carrot, ribbon cut with a vegetable peeler
  • 1/3 cup cilantro (more if you love it), chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons each avocado oil, rice vinegar, red wine vinegar
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Combine all vegetables in a bowl.
  2. Mix in oil, vinegars, and salt.
  3. Set in fridge for 30 minutes to combine flavors.
  4. Serve as a side dish or top on your favorite grilled protein.
