Jicama slaw


Jicama is a tuber used in Asian and Mexican dishes with a taste that sits somewhere between an apple or Asian pear and a radish. It has a firm, crunchy texture that holds well in a slaw. This slaw would go very well with grilled seafood.

You'll need

3 jicama, cut into julienne (see note) 2 kohlrabi, cut into julienne 6 red radishes, cut into julienne 300 gm pineapple (about 1/3), cut into julienne ½ cup coarsely chopped mint 2 green jalapeños, finely chopped 80 ml (1/3 cup) orange juice 2 tbsp lime juice 2½ tbsp olive oil

Method

  • 01
  • Combine jicama, kohlrabi, radish and pineapple in a large bowl, add mint and jalepeño, and toss to combine.
  • 02
  • Whisk citrus juices and olive oil in a bowl, drizzle onto salad and season with two generous pinches of sea salt flakes (this helps balance the sweetness of the pineapple). Transfer to a platter and serve.

Note Jicama, also known as yam bean, is available from Asian grocers.
