Jicama-Bell Pepper Slaw
Why I Love This Recipe
From the Sauce du Jour Kitchen
For the Southwestern Cuisine Cooking Class - 110
If slaw can be pretty, this one is. With red and yellow bells, carrots, purple cabbage and cilantro, it's not only delicious, it's a rainbow on your plate. For the cooking class we served it on top of Blue Corn Crusted Mahi-Mahi topped it Roasted Poblano Sauce and Serrano-Mango Creme, so search for all the recipes here and put together a beautiful dinner. This slaw is also delish on fish tacos!
