Total Time:
30 mins


  • 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


  1. 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.

  2. 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.
