Mango Jicama Slaw

Mango Jicama Slaw

Does anyone else just have to have a side when their eating a sandwich, or burger, hotdog, or anything else on the grill? I’m totally a texture person. I hate anything soggy..if my burger isn’t cooked enough and the juice soaks the bread, back on the grill it goes and I start with a new bun. If my sandwich bread isn’t toasted enough and the condiments start to make it even softer..I have major issues. I know, real world problems, right?

So clearly I don’t eat French Dip, because that would be far to soggy for me. I love chips or fries on the side, always. I love a good crunch with a mostly soft sandwich or burger. In the summer, a lot of us go for pasta salad as a side, and I’m all about it, its one of my favorites, but since it technically is bikini season, a lot of people are watching what they eat…I guess? ;) Well here, my friends, is the answer to both of those dilemmas.

Not only is this Mango Jicama Slaw a perfect, light and refreshing side, but it has a slight kick, sweetness, CRUNCH, and is healthy! It is seriously my favorite snack. (So simple, right?)  When I make it, I make the entire recipe and munch on it all week long..randomly pulling it out of the fridge for a few bites. I top it on salads, eat it with chicken or fish, and/or just stand there with my fork in it. I’ve been making this often for a couple years, and it is always loved! I’ve been asked for this one a lot!

  1. I’m with you – I totally need some crunch! We always put coleslaw (I make mine crunchy without too much sauce) on our bbq sandwiches. And make toddler devours mango so this would be a winner for him as well. :)

  2. This slaw has such beautiful colors with the mango. I bet this would be good on a burger in the summer too. Looks delicious!

  3. Oh man, I adore mangos – I’m so excited to see you paired them with the jicama! I’m going to try this sooner rather than later :) I am trying to eat healthier this month so perfect timing!

  4. So, I have never had jicama! This looks so refreshing!

  5. Alaina, i LOVE jicama! I haven’t bought any in quite some time. But pairing it with mango in a refreshing slaw sounds like perfection to me right now.

  6. Getting ready to make this again tomorrow & thought I would let you know how much we love it. I often end up cutting it up fine & using as a salsa too … Great for parties!

  7. Thank you for the recipe. I made this to go with tilapia fish tacos. It is a perfect crunchy topping!

  8. Love jicama! It adds great texture and flavor to many dishes (I always describe it as a cross between potato and apple). I’ve been using it for years for chicken burritos: jicama, papaya, mango, green chiles, black beans, salsa verde and mojo grilled chicken, wrapped in a warm spinach tortilla.

    I’m for sure making this slaw, I think it would pair perfectly with fresh fish!

    Thanks for the recipe.
