Jicama Slaw

Crisp & Fresh Jicama Slaw

In my opinion, Jicama is one of those vegetables that is truly underrated, at least in the Midwest. I love it with guacamole, hummus, all by itself and of course in this Jicama Slaw! This recipe offers a crisp, fresh flavor that you can’t get enough of, and it makes a great surprise dish for any backyard BBQ.

The key to fabulous flavor is in the olive oil. Taking the time to find a good quality Olive Oil, that isn’t outdated will give your slaw incredible flavor. The O Olive Oil is one of my favorites, and it has a good variety of infused oils that add a new depth of flavor to this salad. The Blood Orange Olive Oil is a personal favorite of mine!
