    Sharlene~W's Note:

    This is the freshest variation on slaw that I have seen in a long time. The ingredients are a bit out of the norm--jicama and cilantro to start with--but the crunch and flavor are to die for. There is enough of the familiar flavors to provide comfort--but your taste buds will love the change. I love all kinds of slaw, but this one tops my list! This recipe comes from Juan-Carlos Cruz (Calorie Commando/FoodTV). ("Cooking" time is chilling time).

      Not sure what went wrong. I was careful about the correct ingredient measurements, we liked the end result, but this was anything but creamy. The dressing was very thin and there wasn't a lot of it.

      This is an excellent salad! The flavor blend of the dressing is excellent - the cider vinegar gives a tangy taste, the mayo keeps it creamy and the hot sauce gives a bit of a bite. I used more red cabbage than green which made it very pretty visually. I ended up only using about half of the dressing for the salad, which is somewhat normal for me...I guess I just like a little less dressing than most. I admit that I didn't have any jicama so used a mixture of snow peas and sugar snap peas, which provided the crunch jicama would have. I will defititely be making this salad again!! Thanks so much for an excellent recipe Sharlene!

      I've been searching for a good cole slaw recipe - something a little different and this more than fits the bill! Great taste and texture. Water chestnuts are the suggested substitute for jicama, and worked great. Thanks for a spectacular recipe.
