Crunchy, sweet, and zesty (literally—there is orange zest in this), this slaw is a great side to grilled fish or chicken. You can also serve it as a fabulous vegan main course; just add some sunflower seeds or quinoa if you're going that route.

  1. Combine oil, orange zest and juice, vinegar, and honey in a large bowl.
  2. Add beets, jicama, cilantro, and mint; toss to combine.
  3. Season with salt and pepper. Serve topped with orange slices.
