    Jicama Carrot Slaw is an unexpected twist on a traditional favorite!

    Jicama Carrot Slaw | stupideasypaleo.comMemorial Day Weekend is almost here.

    That means it’s time for more BBQs and summer fun, and it also means it’s socially acceptable to wear white. I almost never wear white because I’m the world’s biggest klutz. Truly. Just this morning, I was grading lab reports with a shaker bottle of decaf coffee on my desk. Suddenly, a notebook slid off the top of a stack and – you guessed it – coffee. went. all. over. Luckily, I know myself better than to wear white at any time. My brown shorts perfectly camouflaged the fact that I’d just poured coffee all over my lap. Score!

    To make a long story short, with parties and Memorial Day gatherings in the near future, this refreshing slaw is a great side dish to bring with. You could also add shredded cabbage for a more traditional take on slaw.

    1. I just used this as inspiration for a slightly different slaw and my family ate the whole bowl! Thanks for the inspiration. (I shredded it all small, added in shredded cabbage and didn’t have the stuff for the chipotle mayo so did more of a chili mayo.)

    2. Hi Steph,

      Thanks for being me go-to for recipes and other tips for CrossFitters. You’re the best!
      I included this recipe in my Labor Day paleo menu today on my website. Thanks for a delicious paleo side option. 🙂
