Recipe: Jicama-Apple Coleslaw
I heart coleslaw. And luckily I’ve grown up and figured out that the store-bought crap was cramping my style. Here’s a healthy slaw treat to add to your plate. Great as a summer side or as a quick snack.

Makes: 6 servings

1/2 cup Vegenaise non-dairy mayonnaise
3 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
2 tablespoons lime juice
2 tablespoons evaporated cane sugar
1 tablespoon cilantro, chopped
3/4 teaspoon sea salt
Freshly ground pepper, to taste
1 large Jicama bulb, peeled and cut into 3-inch matchsticks
2 carrots, peeled and cut into 3-inch matchsticks
1 large Granny Smith apple, cut into 3-inch matchsticks
1 cup red cabbage, chopped

In a large bowl, whisk together the Vegenaise, rice wine vinegar, lime juice, sugar, cilantro, salt and pepper.  Set aside for dressing.

Using a mandoline, food processor, or julienne vegetable peeler, cut the jicama, carrots, and apples into long, thick matchsticks. Chop the cabbage and add all of the vegetables to the bowl of dressing. Toss from bottom up.
