Prep time: 30 minutes, Chill time: 1 to 4 hours
Cook time: 4 to 6 minutes, Serves: 6

To prepare dressing, combine cilantro, 1/4 cup vegetable oil, vinegar, lime juice, onion, mint, honey, garlic, salt and peppers 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 to 4 hours, stirring occasionally. Just before serving, preheat oven to 400°F. 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.
