Used a New Vegetable for Dinner - Jicama
It is an ugly vegetable, but it tastes pretty good. You can eat it plain on a vegetable tray, chop it fine and add it with cabbage to fish tacos, or mix it in with stir fry (use anywhere you would use water chestnuts).
Toss together the following into a salad bowl.
4 C shredded green cabbage
1 1/2 C shredded jicama
1 C shredded radishes
Add 2T fresh lime juice, 2T rice vinegar, 1 tsp dark sesame oil, 1/2 tsp ground cumin, 1/2 tsp sea salt. Toss together until well coated.
I topped it off with some chopped, fresh cilantro.
It was a wonderful dinner and my whole family enjoyed it! The Summer Slaw gets an 'A' rating from us!
