Jicama Mango Slaw with Cilantro Mint Dressing

Jicama Mango Slaw

I had some leftover cilantro mint sauce and what better way to use it than over a refreshing 5 ingredient coleslaw?  I can’t think of one, so that’s what I did.  While cilantro is a polarizing herb, it has a lot going for it including liver cleansing properties and loads of vitamins and minerals.

RECIPE

COLESLAW

  • 1 small jicama, skin removed and sliced into matchsticks
  • 1 medium/large carrot, matchstick
  • 1 medium mango, medium dice
  • 3 large radishes, matchstick
  • 1 green onion, sliced thinly on the bias, reserve a few greens for garnish

CILANTRO MINT SAUCE

  • 1 cup mint leaves, minced
  • 1 small jalapeno, small diced
  • 1 small shallot or ¼ small onion, diced
  • 1” piece of ginger, skin removed, minced
  • 1 medium clove garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 ½ tsp. Honey, agave, maple or date syrup
  • 1 tsp cumin

  • ¼ cup water or veggie stock
  1. Cut all ingredients for coleslaw and place it in a medium bowl
