Comments

  1. Has anyone used fresh steamed broccoli instead – and letting it chill in the fridge before serving? Planning on making this for Memorial Day, but some of my family members aren’t crazy about raw broccoli

  2. Yummm-mmmee! Had to modify slightly using what I had on hand, but the result was very gooood. I never would have thought that combination of flavors and textures could taste this good!

  3. Is it fresh or cooked broccoli? I’m assuming fresh?

  8. I don’t know how easy it’s going to be for me to find jicama. What can I substitute it with – any suggestions?

  9. I loved this dish. It was easy to make and easy to add or change veggies to taste. Thanks for all the great ideas and make eating healthy fun!!!!!
