Jicama and Corn Slaw with Avocado

This was the very first recipe I ever posted on this blog.  The name of the post was “Dinner July 31st, 2010” and also included instructions for making chipotle black beans and frying sweet plantains.  I’m reposting this jicama slaw because, 8 years later, I’m still making this salad every summer.  Also, the original post…

Hakurei Turnip and Spring Onion Pakora with Chat Masala/ Farmshare Cooking
