Most of my dinner guests had never heard of Jicama, much less taste it. This beautiful salad is full of flavor, crunch, color, and packed with nutrients from the dark colored vegetables. The taste is crunchy, cool and savory-sweet. This is definitely a "show off dish" at your next get together. I last paired it with Beer-braised turkey tacos.

I modified this a bit to work with the vegetables I had on hand (added zucchini, omitted red onion) and it was delicious. Served it with grilled shrimp and warm corn tortillas.

This is a most excellent slaw. I wouldn't change any of the ingredients. Make it as written. I was a little leery making it because my husband is quite attached to cole slaw - but he loved it. It was also the first foray into jicama - I recommend giving it a try as well as this slaw.
