    Jicama, red cabbage & carrot salad

    Primal Fuel
    Inspired by a recipe I found in this book. My version only has 3 ingredients in common with the original, but I love how it turned out - it's deliciously crunchy and refreshing and goes perfectly with chicken salads:


    1 medium jicama root, julienned
    1 large carrot, julienned
    1-2 cups chopped red cabbage
    2 tsp sesame oil
    1-2 tbsp rice wine vinegar
    1 tbsp brown mustard
    1 tsp toasted and crushed anise seeds
    1-2 tsp toasted sesame seeds

    Mix oil, vinegar, mustard, sesame and anise and then toss with vegetables.

    I was already planning on making chunster495's Primal Korean short ribs tomorrow. I think this would go great with that.

    It'd be a different flavour, of course, but I think that might work well. I love fennel.

    This is good.

    I did the super-lazy/had-to-use-this-coleslaw-mix-up version and used coleslaw mix for the cabbage and carrots, but I did manage to be arsed enough to julienne up the jicama and add it in.

    I went with 2 tsp of sesame oil. Will opt for 1 next time, I think.

    Thanks for sharing this. It's lovely.
