Jicama Coleslaw Recipe

Move Over Cabbage, Jicama Takes Coleslaw

A complex slaw, this recipe doesn't exclusively use jicama, but combines radishes, carrots, bell peppers, and cucumbers in a sweet and spicy dressing. Although it's simple, it does take time to prepare — many of the vegetables are grated. It goes fast with one person grating and another chopping, so get someone to help you out (like I did!).
