Jicama Pineapple Slaw

Are you familiar with jicama? This tuber looks like a radish and is the root of a vine native to Mexico and Central America. The flesh is crunchy, mild, and faintly sweet and often served with a little lime juice and chile powder to accompany Mexican dishes. On its own jicama can be a little flat, however with some seasoning and lime juice, it comes alive, and is wonderfully refreshing. This recipe is for a very simple but tasty Jicama Pineapple Slaw. Totally refreshing with a wonderful crunchiness!


  • 1 medium jicama root, peeled and cut into thick matchsticks
  • 11/2 cups small chunks of fresh pineapple, plus 1 tablespoon of juice from the pineapple if available
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped scallions (white and light green parts only)

  1. Toss jicama, pineapple, pineapple juice, lime juice, and salt in a bowl.
  2. Add scallions and and toss to combine. Enjoy!
