Orange and Jicama Salad

Orange and Jicama Salad

Jicama makes this salad crunchy and really filling! We infuse extra flavor into it by soaking the matchstick-size pieces in a lime and red wine vinegar dressing with oranges.

Got some spare time on your hands? It’s worth the extra effort to toast the pine nuts in a hot dry pan until they become fragrant and start to turn golden brown. Try this jicama salad as an easy side dish with baked chicken or salmon.
