Blood Orange and Jicama Salad is a refreshing mix of juicy citrus and crunchy jicama — it’ll make you forget all about the mid-winter blues and give you a healthy dose of Vitamin C!

  1. Slice the oranges into 1/8 – 1/4 inch slices. Trim the rind with a small sharp knife or scissors. Remove any seeds.
  2. Peel the jicama and slice it into 1/4 inch slices. Cut the slices into thin matchsticks.
  3. Arrange the slices of orange on a platter along with the spinach leaves. Scatter the jicama sticks on top, and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Just before serving, drizzle with O Orange Blossom Vinegar.

Yield: serves 4

Notes:

• I sliced my oranges on my mandoline slicer, but in this case a sharp knife would be fine too. I slice the oranges first and then use clean sharp scissors to cut the peel off.
• If you slice the jicama ahead of time, keep it moist under a damp paper towel.
• Whole jicama should be stored in a cool dry place, just like potatoes. Don’t refrigerate.
