uncooked jicama

1½ cup(s), peeled and shredded**

fresh radish(es)

1 cup(s), sliced, shredded**

fresh lime juice

2 Tbsp

rice vinegar

2 Tbsp

dark sesame oil

1 tsp

ground cumin

table salt

  1. Toss the cabbage, jicama and radishes in a salad bowl.
  2. Add the lime juice, vinegar, sesame oil, cumin and salt. Toss well to serve. Yields about 1 cup per serving.


*To shred the cabbage, slice it lengthwise through the root; place it cut-side down on a cutting board, slice off the root and discard it, and continue to thinly slice the cabbage, separating the strips as you go.**To shred the jicama and radishes, pass them through the large holes of a box grater. If making this recipe in advance, store it, covered, in the refrigerator for up to 2 days, omitting the salt; add it just before serving.
