Recipe by PaulaG

This is my adaption of a recipe that I found on-line. I have posted the full amount of ingredients for the dressing; however, when I made this I did have a considerable amount of dressing left. Please dress the slaw to your liking.

This was made to take to a gathering we attended the other day rather than for us here at home (I'm not that partial to jalapenos or avocados)! There's no way around a 5-star rating, 'cause it was a big hit! I did make a couple of changes, though, in that I cut back on the amount of jalapeno, & I doubled the amount of the salad ingredients, while keeping the dressing ingredients as given!

  1. Place the cilantro, mint, jalapeno, sugar, salt, cumin and lime juice in the bowl of a food processor. Process until finely chopped, stopping once to scrape down the sides.
  2. With the motor running, drizzle in the oil through the feed tube. Transfer the dressing to a measuring cup.
  3. Do not clean the processor but use the medium shredder blade to grate the peeled jicama and apple. Place the shredded jicama and apple into a bowl. Peel the avocado and cut into bite size chunks.
  4. Peel the orange with a knife removing peel and pith. Holding the orange over the bowl, section with a sharp knife cutting away the surrounding membranes. Cut orange sections in half and toss salad with dressing to taste.
  5. Season with salt and pepper to taste and if desired garnish with any additional mint or cilantro. Serve immediately.
