      Not as available, adds O taste, but lots of crunch. Sub celery Instead… ????

  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

    • Traci ann

      You can par-boil it… My family enjoys the crunch of the raw broccoli; as a side note, I see sunflower seeds in the picture but they are not included in this “healthier” version. I also substitute celery for the jicama because it’s more plentiful and much cheaper, also adds a little taste… ????

  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?

    • I want to try it with cooked broccoli, and let it chill before serving. What did you use?

    water chestnuts- asian pears (can drain liquid to make them more ‘crunchy’)- radishes- apples

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

  8. 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!!!!!
