Here's how to make this easy side dish:

Ingredients:

  • 1 Medium Jicama Root, grated with a cheese grater
  • 1/2 finely diced orange, yellow or red bell pepper (or you can use mini-sweet bells, too!)
  • 1/2 de-seeded cucumber, diced finely
  • 1/4 red onion, finely diced (less if it's a strong one! You don't want the flavor to overtake the slaw!)
  • Handful FRESH Cilantro, minced lightly with sharp knife (so as not to bruise it!)
  • 1/2 to 1 large lime, squeezing the juice directly into slaw mixture (to taste)
  • 2/3 of small can of Mandarin Orange Slices, diced (add just 1-2 Tbsp of the juice, but not all of it!)

Instructions:

Stir all the ingredients together, adding or tweaking anything you'd like to your unique taste (such as 1/2 fresh jalapeno, diced, for heat.) 

Refrigerate mixture for about 1-2 hours then stir thoroughly again and serve!

Enjoy as a FRESH and healthy side dish that everyone loves! At potlucks and gatherings around our house, this dish gets wiped clean!
