Pomegranate Jícama Slaw Recipe

6 to 8 servings SERVINGS


    For the Salad

    • One 2-1/2- to 3-pound jícama, peeled and cut into 1/8-inch sticks
    • 1 medium pomegranate, seeds removed
    • 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
    • 1 cup loosely packed fresh cilantro, finely chopped
    • 1/2 cup loosely packed fresh mint, finely shredded

    For the Dressing

    • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
    • 1/3 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
    • 2 tablespoons pomegranate molasses (optional)
    • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt


    • Mix the jícama, pomegranate seeds, onion, cilantro, and mint in a large salad bowl.
    • In a small bowl, make the dressing by whisking together the olive oil, lime juice, pomegranate molasses, and salt.
    • Pour the dressing over the salad and toss until jícama is well-coated.
    • Chill for at least 20 minutes before serving.
    Note: For an autoimmune protocol (AIP) version of this recipe, omit the pomegranate seeds. For anti-candida, use half the pomegranate or omit it entirely.

  • You see jícama in most health stores, but probably wonder what to do with it. This crunchy and yummy root gets its sweet flavor from inulin, which is a prebiotic — food for the probiotics in your gut.
