Napa Cabbage and Jicama Slaw’s sweet and crunchy combination makes it a terrific side dish for any hearty, autumn meal. Napa cabbage is a lovely addition to the fall vegetable garden and to your fall menus. It looks like a paler version of romaine lettuce with crinkly leaves wrapped tightly together. Its flavor is lighter and sweeter than regular cabbage, which is the reason I enjoy it so much in this recipe paired with the sweet and creamy Apple Cider Dressing. Jicama is a root vegetable that leans toward the sweet side of flavor. Its crunchy texture adds another dimension to this slaw.

Napa Cabbage and Jicama Slaw

By October 28, 2014

Ingredients

  • 1 medium - Napa cabbage (about 2 lbs), cored and shredded
  • 1/2 medium - jicama, peeled and sliced into match sticks
  • 1 medium - apple, cored and diced
  • 1/4 cup - walnuts, chopped (optional)
  • 1/2 recipe - Apple Cider Dressing (see link below for recipe)

Instructions

  1. Follow the instructions for making the Apple Cider Dressing.
  2. Combine the cabbage, jicama, and Apple Cider Dressing together. Toss well to coat.
  3. Top with the chopped apple and walnuts. Serve.

Tips
Jicama is a tough, fibrous vegetable that can be a bit hard to slice. I've found that my mandolin, or my food processor with the shredding disc, does a nice job.
