Crunchy Jicama and Cabbage Slaw

Time

Description

This crisp, colorful jicama salad is loaded with flavor. The ingredients pack in a punch of polyphenols and beneficial compounds, such as quercetin from red onion and apple, carotenoids from raw carrot, and anthocyanins from purple cabbage (one of the richest food sources of anthocyanins!). A pinch of Pluck upgrades this salad dressing with further nutrient-density, while jicama provides a source of prebiotic fiber to support a healthy gut microbiome. This slaw is best enjoyed as a side salad at an outdoor BBQ or as a garnish for tacos, hotdogs, burgers, or more.
