"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."

Ready In:




  • 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.
  • With the motor running, drizzle in the oil through the feed tube. Transfer the dressing to a measuring cup.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste and if desired garnish with any additional mint or cilantro. Serve immediately.

  1. 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!

I came to this site in March of 2004. It was then called Recipezaar. This site was the first on-line site that I ever joined. I first popped in 2003 while searching for a Peach Cobbler Recipe. In March of 2004, DH was having shoulder surgery and I was looking for a Split Pea Soup. Once again I found myself on Zaar as it came to be called. Over the years I hung out and learned from some of the best home cooks in the country, I posted over 700 recipes on the site, reviewed over 3500 recipes and posted over 3000 food photos. Over the next 10 years the site made many changes and in 2010 it was sold to to Food Network and became Food.com. Until last year we played games, talked and shared with one another. As a result of the community and the relationships I built I got to meet some wonderful people from all over the country. I also have a great number of friends that I have never meet face to face. Some of us still hang out at various places across the net. Zaar was more than a cooking community. It was an internet community of friendship. Life is an adventure ever changing.
