Jicama, a root vegetable native to Mexico, has a ruddy, tough brown skin which must be removed before eating. Once peeled, it resembles a raw potato. Often eaten raw, jicama’s texture is crisp, snappy and a little starchy and its flavor is mild and with a hint of sweetness. This cool, refreshing salad combines slices of jicama with sweet-tangy oranges, along with herbal cilantro and salty queso fresco. Serve it alongside grilled meat or chicken, or as a side dish for a Mexican-inspired meal.
tablespoons lime juice
01Using a sharp knife, slice off the top and bottom ½ inch from each orange. One at a time, stand the oranges on a cut end and cut from top to bottom following the contours of the fruit to remove the peel and white pith. Hold each orange over a small bowl and cut between the membranes to release the segments, letting them drop into the bowl. Once all of the segments have been cut free, squeeze the membranes over a large bowl to extract all the juice; discard the membranes.
