Jicama Slaw with Avocado Dressing

Jicama (pronounced hee-ka-ma or like Jose) makes a great slaw. This can be served as salad or topped on your favourite burger or sandwich. It's crunchy and sweet and I like the creamy avocado in the dressing.

You will need:

  • 1 small Jicama
  • 1 carrot- grated
  • 2-3 small red peppers
  • 2 small English cucumbers
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1-2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 1/2 lime juiced
  • 1 tsp sugar or honey
  • 1 tsp mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp chopped cilantro
  • salt and pepper

Step 1: peel and slice jicama in half. Half will be grated and the other half will be sliced to add different textures to the slaw.

Step 2: grate the carrot. Grate one cucumber and slice the other. Grate the pepper and slice the second with a knife.

Step 3: chop the cilantro .

Step 4: in a bowl mash 1/2 the avocado into a paste, add vinegar, olive oil, lime juice, sugar and 1-2 tsp mayonnaise (not much just a touch to make it creamy) Toss into slaw. Taste and add salt and pepper.

Serve with some additional slices of avocado and a drizzle of olive oil.
