I'm a really big fan of jicama, have you tried it? It has the texture of a crisp apple, but with a different flavor that's mild and refreshing. I've used it in this Spicy Watermelon and Jicama Salsa, in this Jicama Salad, and on skewers with Melon and Cucumber! With this recipe, I've made it into a tasty slaw! Give it a try – just check out my whole collection of low carb jicama recipes!
How to Make Low Carb Jicama Slaw
Peel the jicama and cut it into matchsticks. This will take some time unless you have a clever kitchen gadget, or (like me) you buy them ready prepared in sticks, then cut them into smaller pieces. Add them to a bowl and add chopped roasted red peppers (out of a jar is fine), chopped green onions, oil, lime juice, black pepper, and salt.
I also added a chopped fresh jalapeño (deseeded!) because I enjoy the taste and heat! Mix everything together well, then keep in the fridge until required.
