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 live in the San Francisco area and love it here. I discovered Recipezaar (then Food.com..Genius Kitchen) in 2001 and have been so happy to have my favorite recipes stored safely here. I am mother to 7 and grandmother to 7. I love to knit, smock, sew, etc., but my favorite hobby of the moment is traditional rug hooking. This is a sample of what I do.? It's called "November".? I dyed most of the wool myself. It is made from wool flannel, cut into strips a little less than 1/4" and then worked into a linen backing. This is my 3rd rug.
