Jicama Avocado Slaw on Rice Crackers

Share:

Coleslaw takes an Asian turn with this savory jicama avocado slaw atop rice crackers. Peel the coarse outer layer of jicama to reveal a crunchy, nutritious addition to this cabbage-less slaw. Using soy sauce without gluten and rice crackers makes for a savory, gluten-free snack.

Ingredients

Serving Size: 4

1 Tbsp. lime juice
1 tsp. sesame oil
1 Tbsp. gluten-free soy sauce
1/4 cup rice vinegar
1 tsp. sugar
1/2 ripe Fresh California Avocado, peeled, seeded and diced
1 cup shredded jicama
1 cup shredded carrots
12 medium-sized round rice crackers

As with all fruits and vegetables, wash avocados before cutting.
