This was a surprising dish. I loved the harmony of the citrus flavors in the dressing. The jicama and cabbage had a wonderful crunchiness that I enjoyed too. I used this dish as a side to a chicken and salsa recipe, and it was wonderful. Thanks, Mirj for sharing this keeper.

As good as healthy can get! Positively scrummy! Love the jicama, jalapeno and cilantro in this slaw!

Delicious salad. I made half a recipe of the salad but the whole dressing recipe. It was great! Will have this often with Mexican themed meals. The fresh lime juice really makes it. Served it with quesadillas.
