Ingredients

  1. 1/4 cup pomegranate juice

  2. 1 tablespoon seasoned rice vinegar

  3. 1 1/2 teaspoons agave nectar

  4. 1 1/2 teaspoons Dijon mustard

  5. 1/2 teaspoon finely grated lime zest

  6. 1/2 cup canola oil

  7. Salt and freshly ground pepper

  8. 1 red grapefruit

  9. 2 navel oranges

  10. 1 pound jicama, peeled and cut into 2-by-1/4-inch matchsticks

  11. 2 bunches watercress, thick stems discarded

  12. 1/3 cup pomegranate seeds

  1. In a blender, combine the pomegranate juice, vinegar, agave nectar, mustard and lime zest. With the machine on, add the oil in a thin stream and blend until emulsified. Season the dressing with salt and pepper.
  2. Using a sharp knife, peel the grapefruit and oranges, removing all of the bitter white pith. Working over a bowl, cut in between the membranes to release the sections. Add the jicama, watercress and pomegranate seeds to the bowl. Add the dressing, toss gently and serve right away.
