My Mom is borderline diabetic but it doesn't mean she has to give up delicious foods. This is from Diabetic Living magazine. Substitute parsnips for the jicama if you cannot find the latter.

Jicama is one of my many favorite raw food snacks, whether dipped, diced, shredded, what have you, & this coleslaw is extremely satisfying! Except for the peaches (I used 2 of them) I cut the ingredients in half & still had plenty for 4 of us! Although the recipe didn't indicate it, anyone making this should know shred the green & the red cabbage (unless, of course, you don't know what coleslaw is!) & how great it can taste! Either of the other fruits would have gone well in this recipe, but we particularly enjoyed the peaches! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Healthy Choices ABC tag]
