Apple Jicama Slaw

This crisp, sweet slaw is the perfect partner for summer burgers, barbecue, tacos or just as a side dish. It’ll stay crisp for up to 5 days, too, so you can make it ahead!

  • Prep Time: 3h
  • Total Time: 18m
  • Serves: 6

Ingredients

  • medium granny smith apples
  • 1 lb jicama (usually 1/2 to 2/3 of one jicama root)
  • 10 oz angel hair shredded cabbage (1 small bag)
  • 3 tbsp. mayonnaise
  • 6 oz Elements Pineapple Turmeric Shrub
  • 2 tsp. salt

Instructions

  3. Add in the remaining ingredients and toss to combine.
