Avocado, Orange and Jicama Salad
- TOTAL TIME:
- SERVINGS: 6
Feta is a fun, briny addition to this salad's Mexican mix of jicama, avocado and cilantro.
3 navel oranges
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
Pinch of cayenne pepper
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 small jicama (1 pound)—peeled, quartered and thinly sliced
2 Hass avocados, quartered lengthwise and thinly sliced
1 cup crumbled feta cheese
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
- Using a sharp knife, peel the oranges, removing all of the bitter white pith. Working over a small bowl, cut in between the membranes to release the sections.
- Squeeze the membranes over a bowl to extract the juice. Whisk in the lime juice, vinegar, oil and cayenne; season with salt and pepper. Add the jicama and let stand for 15 minutes. Fold in the orange sections, avocado, feta and cilantro; serve.
