Ingredients
  • 1 bunch of cilantro, chopped
  • 1 lime (zest and juice)
  • ½ cup organic whole milk yogurt, plain
  • ½ cabbage sliced in small pieces
  • 2 carrots, shredded (optional)
  • 1 jicama, peeled and julienned
  • 5 green onions, chopped
  • ½ cup homemade mayo, see recipe below
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
Instructions
  1. In a food processor throw in almost all of the cilantro (save some to toss into salad later), the lime zest and juice, and the yogurt.
  2. Put the mixture in a large bowl and whisk in the mayo.
  3. Toss in the veggies and mix thoroughly.
  4. Stir in the remaining cilantro. Serve!
For homemade mayo:
  1. In food processor pulse egg. Make sure egg is at room temperature.
  2. Very slowly, drizzle in light olive oil while letting food processor run. This will take a few minutes. Have patience. End product should look like mayonnaise, nice and creamy.
  3. Put into a jar. Will keep for about a week in the refrigerator.

This recipe has a little bit of everything!  Creaminess, crunchiness, and a little bit of kick!  Nice dinner side and also a great potluck choice.
