Jicama, Peppers and Cilantro Salad

Background:

We grow our own citrus as well as allspice, cilantro and chili’s. And we raise our own honey from bee hives on our Little Farm. So this salad is a very special one that we like to use all year round. It is refreshing and the citrus dressing is surprising.

Dressing:

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened orange juice (or 3/8 cup lime juice with 2 tablespoons rice vinegar)
  • 1 small garlic clove, smashed peeled and finely minced
  • 1-2 chilies, chopped
  • A pinch allspice
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest, chopped fine
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro coarsely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt and pepper

Salad Ingredients:

  • 1 jicama, peeled and cut into thin slices ( you can buy this already cut up in some markets)
  • 2-3 oranges (or other citrus)
  • 1 red onion, peeled rinsed and thinly sliced
  • 1 yellow sweet pepper, seeded and thinly sliced (optional)

Directions:

  1. Combine all of the dressing components 15 to 30 minutes before serving.
  2. Arrange the salad in a bowl or serving plater.
  3. Drizzle the dressing over the salad to cover.
  4. Serve cool, but not overly chilled for the best flavor.
