Bobby Flay made a full sugar, full honey version of this on his new Bobby Flay Barbecue Addiction show. It was beautiful, and being the cilantro-lover that he is, it also had cilantro. I changed it up a bit and drastically reduced the carbs.
- Purple cabbage
- Red onion
- Flat leaf Italian parsley
- 1/4 c. lime juice
- 1 individual packet of Sunrise flavor Crystal Light, mixed with 1 cup water
- 1/8 tsp. kosher salt
- pepper, to taste
(I used a little sugar-free maple syrup the first time, but I really think it’s better without it.)
Round up all your ingredients. Mix up your dressing. Peel the jicama with a vegetable peeler. Using an old-fashioned cheese grater (or a mandoline or your foot processor shredder blade), grate the cabbage, jicama and carrot. After making it myself I decided that next time I would do twice as much jicama as the other ingredients. Here, I did it relatively equal. Pull off the parsley leaves and add them. Toss lightly with the dressing. Don’t use too much!
