A crunchy, French Caribbean slaw for topping bokit sandwiches.
Chef David Drumeaux’s undressed version of the Haitian coleslaw, pikliz (“pick-lees”) adds freshness and crunch to every sandwich at Bokit Delux. Giromon is a type of winter squash popular in the Caribbean. Look for it in West Indian markets, or substitute another dense, sweet squash such as butternut or kabocha.
