Low Carb Brussels Sprouts Jicama Salad

Brussels Sprouts Jicama SaladAwhile back, when I was messin with various salads using jicama, one of them was this Brussels sprouts jicama salad.  I took a photo of it, wrote down everything, ate it, loved it, and promptly lost my written down recipe scratches.  I have made it again and this time I’m posting it right away as I do have lots of little pieces of paper with all kinds of thing on them and yes, I do lose some of them.  Also see Jicama Strawberry Cucumber Salad & Saucy Crunchy Peanut Salad

When you see toasted almonds in a recipe anywhere on this site, I do them on top of the stove in a skillet, using a little bacon grease with maybe 1-2 t depending on how many I do.

As I am a Type II diabetic, all recipes on this website are low carb and diabetic friendly.

Notes
  1. Blanching your shaved Brussels sprouts for about 8-10 seconds will not only perk up the color but also soften them just a little. Of course they will need to be drained and cooled before use.
  2. It is best to mix your salt (and Just Like Sugar if using) into the lime juice as salt does not dissolve well in oil.
  3. I actually use 1 drop of Sucralose but Just Like Sugar will keep it paleo.
