Cucumber and Jicama Slaw
A chili-spiced slaw of julienned cucumber and jicama pairs well with pork tacos, fajitas, or grilled shrimp.
- 1 English cucumber
- 1 small jicama
- 1 1/2 teaspoons honey
- 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
- Coarse salt
- 1/4 teaspoon chili powder, such as ancho or chipotle
Cut English cucumber into 3-inch lengths, then thinly slice lengthwise, avoiding center. Cut slices into matchsticks. Peel jicama and thinly slice. Working with several slices at a time, stack and cut lengthwise into matchsticks. In a bowl, toss jicama, cucumber, honey, and fresh lime juice until combined. Season with coarse salt and chili powder.
