Jicama Slaw

Have I told you how much I love the food processor?!  It makes recipes such as this one come together in a snap  - along with other yummy things like hummus and carrot-apple-raisin salad just to name a few...I could just go on and on. 

I served this slaw alongside Beef Carnitas. It was so light and refreshing, plus it added a nice crunch to a meal that would have otherwise been a little mono-textured (I doubt that is a real word, but it is most fitting). This slaw would also be a great accompaniment to my Jerky Turkey BurgersSouthwest Turkey and Black Bean BurgersSpicy Tequila Lime Chicken, or Black Bean Burgers. Enjoy!

1 small jicama, peeled
3 carrots, peeled (or about 1 cup baby carrots)
3 scallions, chopped
3/4 - 1 cup chopped fresh cilantro 

2 TBS olive oil
1 1/2 TBS lime juice
1/4 tsp chile flakes
1/2 tsp chili powder
4 TBS rice wine vinegar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper

Shred the jicama and carrots in a food processor. Transfer to a large bowl and stir in the scallions and cilantro. 

In a small bowl which together all the ingredients for the dressing. Pour over the jicama mixture. Adjust seasonings as needed. It's that simple!
