Create a new slaw with broccoli, oranges and a light citrus dressing.
bag (16 ounces) broccoli slaw
small jicama, peeled and cut into julienne strips (2 cups)
small red onion, cut in half and thinly sliced (1 cup)
cup chopped fresh cilantro
tablespoons vegetable oil
tablespoons lemon juice
teaspoons grated orange peel
In large bowl, mix broccoli slaw and jicama. Peel oranges with sharp paring knife; cut into 1/4-inch slices. Cut each slice into fourths. Add oranges, onion and cilantro to broccoli mixture.
In tightly covered container, shake all dressing ingredients until well mixed. Pour dressing over salad and toss. Serve immediately, or cover and refrigerate up to 24 hours.
Before peeling the orange, grate the orange peel for the dressing.
Jicama is a crunchy root vegetable with a sweet, nutty flavor that’s popular in Mexican cuisine. Its pretty ivory hue does not discolor, which makes it a natural to use in salads like this one.
