Recipe: Orange-Jicama Salad

Recipe: Original Orange-Jicama Salad

 

This cool, refreshing salad combines the crunchiness of jicama with the citrusy tanginess of oranges. The perfect side dish for a balmy summer evening barbecue. (Plus it’s rich in fiber!)

  • 4 large seedless oranges, peeled and divided into sections
  • 1 lb. jicama, peeled and cut into strips
  • 1/3 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 2 Tbsp. red wine vinegar
  • 2 tsp. olive oil
  • 4 cups torn romaine lettuce
  • 4 cups torn red leaf lettuce
  • 1 Tbsp. roasted pine nuts

In medium-sized bowl, toss together oranges and jicama. In separate bowl, whisk together juices, vinegar, and oil. Pour over fruit. Cover and chill 2 hours (or longer).

Toss lettuces together in large bowl. Arrange orange-jicama mixture on top, and garnish with nuts. Serves 4.

Preparation Time: 20 minutes (plus 2 hours or more to chill)
