Creamy Coleslaw

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by SharleneW

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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine vinegar, mayonnaise, poppy seeds, celery salt, and hot sauce in a small bowl, whisking until well blended.
  2. In a medium bowl, toss together the cilantro, cabbage, shredded carrots, green onions, bell pepper and jicama.
  3. Pour dressing over and toss until coated with dressing. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  4. Cover and refrigerate for about an hour so slaw is thoroughly chilled and flavores blended.
