Hello Blogger World!!

Hope all are well!!
I'm still regrouping from hernia repair surgery from back in January!! They tried to kill me yet again!! Spent 10 days in the hospital, came home for a few days than had to go back in for another 10 days, ughhhhhhh!!! Than had a nurse come in every other day to change the wound vac. Was a mess I tell ya!! Thank God for my Mom!! She deserves a battle medal, sainthood something!! I wake up from anesthesia ready to fight!! So she gets the brunt of it, good thing she loves me!!
I've been sewing and quilting a bit plus trying to clean, I just get tired quick.

I tried this Jicama Slaw from a local food store, had the ingredients on the label. So I made some my self, it's really good!! Nice change from regular slaw, plus I didn't read the ings. before I bought it! LOL I'm not a fan of fruit mixed with food!!
So here's my version of:

 Jicama Apple Slaw

Everything is either match sticks or shredded

1 medium Jicama  root
1 gala apple
1 small red onion
1 green pepper, feel free to use other colored peppers, more festive!
1 bag of cole slaw mix
2 stalks of celery
curly parsley
Marzettis poppy seed dressing
Mix all together and enjoy!!
On this batch I forgot to buy celery and curly parsley, next time I'm going to use a granny smith apple.

Thank you Kate!

I like the idea of using a Granny Smith instead of a gala apple in it. I would leave out the celery and parsley AND the green pepper anyway as I don't care for them. I love jicama just cut into strips and sprinkled with some Tajin seasoning.

Thanks Gene! The girl at the produce market told me to try it with chili powder, lime juice and a sprinkle of salt. Which I did yummy!!

Your slaw sounds delicious, a great mix of ingredients! I like your blog too and I will enjoy following you. Take care

Needled Mom said... is so good to hear from you again. It sounds like you have had a time with that hernia repair. Those wound vacs are a nightmare, but they tend to work pretty well. Noisy little buggers....aren't they?

The slaw sounds delicious. I do a similar one with broccoli slaw that everyone around here loves. I'll have to try it with the jicama.
