Jicama Slaw


I've never eaten a Jicama, but Nisha is a big fan of them, and she was really interested in this recipe I saw Sandra Lee making on FoodTV.

I must admit, I'm really intrigued with it, also, so I'm going to give it a try. Mandarin oranges, mayo, sounds good to me -

If you, too, are unfamiliar with Jicama, it supposedly has a flavor similar to some varieties of apples.

1 medium jicama, shredded on your box grater
2 cups (1 bag) prepackaged angel hair cole slaw
1 (11-ounce) can Mandarin orange segments, drained, 1/4 cup juice reserved
1/4 cup mayonnaise
3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 red onion, minced into small dice

Add cole slaw, onion and Mandarin orange segments to grated Jicama; set aside.

In a small bowl, whisk together reserved Mandarin juice, mayonnaise, vinegar, and salt and pepper.

Pour dressing over jicama mixture. Toss to mix thoroughly.

Serve immediately.
