Sunflower Slaw

This slaw tastes best after the flavors have time to mix.  This is a perfect side dish to make a few hours or day in advance.


5 cups green cabbage, sliced thin
1 cup purple cabbage, sliced thin
2 cups jicama, julienned
1/4 cup red onion, sliced thin
1/3 cup rice vinegar
1 tbsp sunflower oil
1 tbsp maple syrup
1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp salt

1/2 cup raw sunflower seeds
1/2 to 1 tsp sunflower oil
salt to taste


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Mix vinegar, oil, syrup, garlic powder and 1 tsp salt in a small bowl.  Mix green and purple cabbage, jicama and red onion in a large bowl.  Toss with dressing.  Refrigerate until ready to serve.  Toss sunflower seeds with 1/2 to 1 tsp sunflower oil and spread out on a cookie sheet.  Sprinkle with salt to taste.  Bake for 5 to 10 minutes, keeping a close eye on them until they are lightly browned.  Garnish slaw with toasted seeds when serving.  Serves four.  Source:


  1. Great info thanks! My son has problems with this. I couldn't figure it out but when I did it was great! I need to get the no-fenol to have on hand! I let him have a peach as we were picking them at the farm and his cheeks turned red. It had been so long since it had happened since I try to stay away from the high ones. I hope he grows out of it!!!

  2. The slaw looks wonderful! Good to know about food sensitivity. Luckily, none of my family members have this problem.

  3. This is great info, I have auto immune issues but I also have an allergy to sulfa meds? Would that be like the sulfate supplements?

  4. That is a good question! I don't know. I recommend finding a nutritionist who is knowledgeable about phenols. Sorry I'm not more help.

  5. Houston's TriEnza also has the no-phenol component. I think elimination diets are helpful, but in our case, we have eliminated so much, that instead of removing the health benefits of fruits and veggies, I have decided to push the epsom salt baths and the phenol-reducing supplements...

    Great and informative post!
