Jicama Mango Slaw with Cilantro and Lime – a quick healthy detoxing summer salad is refreshing and light and delicious with grilled fish or seafood, or my favorite, these  Pineapple Chipotle Shrimp Skewers.  If you have a Cuisinart with a grater attachment, it is especially easy and literally can be made in 15 minutes. Hand grating takes a little longer, but it’s totally doable and I’ve done it both ways. Make sure to pick out a very very firm mango, for easier grating -a perfectly ripe mango will not work well here and will just get mushy. Green mangos are great too … see the notes in the recipe.

Also know this recipe makes quite a bit of salad, so unless you are having a large gathering think about halving it, or serve it throughout the week, leaving the dressing on the separate and on the side and dressing only what you want to eat in one sitting.

Life is good here. Catering, kayaking, camping, trying to live a more balanced life with work and play. And you know what?  For the first summer in ages, I feel really good. Not overwhelmed. Not stressed. Not tired.

Sun-kissed and relaxed.

Here’s wishin’ the same for you. xo

  1. Loved this recipe! I made it as the side salad for my pork roast dinner and it was a wonderful add with the crunch and tang, my guest loved it and he is typically not a slaw fan at all. I added a little honey to the dressing and glad I did. Thank you for this delicious recipe!

  2. Amazing salad! Love the crunch from the jicama & spicy-ness from the chili. It’s an explosion of flavors! I definitely want to do it again! Specially now that it’s mango season. Thanks!

  3. The heading mentions cilantro, and then the recipe doesn’t mention it at all. ??? I love cilantro and will just use my judgment. Really want to try this recipe!
