Cucumber and Jicama Slaw

(A chili-spiced slaw of julienned cucumber and jicama pairs well with tacos, fajitas or grilled shrimp!)


1 English cucumber
1 small jicama
1 1/2 teaspoons honey
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
Coarse salt
1/4 teaspoon chili powder, such as ancho or chipotle


Cut English cucumber into 3-inch lengths, then thinly slice lengthwise, avoiding center. Cut slices into matchsticks. Peel jicama and thinly slice. Working with several slices at a time, stack and cut lengthwise into matchsticks. In a bowl, toss jicama, cucumber, honey, and fresh lime juice until combined. Season with coarse salt and chili powder.
