Healthy Recipe: Apple Jicama Coleslaw

September is here and you know what that means: apples are everywhere. And if you’re one of those people who likes to go apple picking, you’ll probably end up with a 20-pound bag of apples in your refrigerator that you have no idea what to do with. You can only make so many baked apples and apple crisps before you think, now what?! Well, we’re here to save the day. This Apple Jicama Coleslaw combines fresh apples with low-carb jicama (a root vegetable that you may not be familiar with, but you’re going to love) and a little hot sauce for just the right amount of kick. Serve it alongside your favorite protein (it goes great with grilled chicken) and you have a meal that’s sure to please everyone.
