Jicama Apple Slaw

Author Notes

Coleslaw is one of those summer dishes that is always invited to the barbecue. Usually made out of cabbage and mayonaise it is just as unfriendly to the waistline as the ribs and pulled pork are. Plus, who likes cabbage anyways? This recipe reduces the cabbage to the supporting cast in favor of letting the crunchy jicama and sweet apples star. Tossed in a healthy yogurt and jalepeno dressing, it's a little bit more interesting than your traditional slaw, and you'll still look great in your bikini. —stirfrei
