Mango Jicama Slaw

Mango Jicama Slaw

Does anyone else just have to have a side when their eating a sandwich, or burger, hotdog, or anything else on the grill? I’m totally a texture person. I hate anything soggy..if my burger isn’t cooked enough and the juice soaks the bread, back on the grill it goes and I start with a new bun. If my sandwich bread isn’t toasted enough and the condiments start to make it even softer..I have major issues. I know, real world problems, right?

So clearly I don’t eat French Dip, because that would be far to soggy for me. I love chips or fries on the side, always. I love a good crunch with a mostly soft sandwich or burger. In the summer, a lot of us go for pasta salad as a side, and I’m all about it, its one of my favorites, but since it technically is bikini season, a lot of people are watching what they eat…I guess? 😉 Well here, my friends, is the answer to both of those dilemmas.

Not only is this Mango Jicama Slaw a perfect, light and refreshing side, but it has a slight kick, sweetness, CRUNCH, and is healthy! It is seriously my favorite snack. (So simple, right?)  When I make it, I make the entire recipe and munch on it all week long..randomly pulling it out of the fridge for a few bites. I top it on salads, eat it with chicken or fish, and/or just stand there with my fork in it. I’ve been making this often for a couple years, and it is always loved! I’ve been asked for this one a lot!
