Food Quotes

"No therapy or drug known to modern medical science can rebuild tissue that has been damaged by disease or trauma. Food alone can accomplish this feat. It is for this reason that nutrition is an indispensable weapon against disease".
Dr. Bernard Jensen (1908-2001)

Jicama and Cilantro Slaw

Cilantro Dressing
1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1/4 cup high oleic expeller-expressed safflower oil
2 tablespoons each: cider or wine vinegar and lime juice
2 tablespoons finely chopped red onion
1 tablespoon honey
2 cloves garlic, minced
Dash of real salt, pepper and cayenne pepper

1 small head red cabbage, divided
2 cups julienne strips jicama
1/2 cup each: chopped red and green pepper
1 (6 inch) corn tortilla
2 tablespoons high oleic expeller-expressed safflower oil

Directions: To prepare dressing, combine all ingredients in a screw top jar; place lid on tightly and shake well. To prepare slaw, set aside six outer leaves from cabbage; place in a plastic bag and refrigerate until ready to serve. Shred enough remaining cabbage to equal 2 cups. Combine shredded cabbage, jicama and peppers in a medium bowl. Toss with Cilantro Dressing; cover and chill for 1-4 hours, stirring occasionally. Just before serving, preheat oven to 400 degrees. Brush both sides of tortilla with oil; cut into thin strips. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 4 to 6 minutes or until golden and crisp. With a slotted spoon, mound slaw in reserved cabbage leaves and top with tortilla strips. Makes 6 servings.
