I love sweet and spicy combinations and this fruit salad is one of those great pairings. Salad should chill for about 2 hours before serving so plan ahead.

This is a peppy salad that I loved. I used a Sprtzer Balsamic Mist as the dressing. For the orange I used a Satsumi orange but the Navel will be livlier in the flavor. Had to use a green Jalapeno but added a bit of sweet red pepper for the color Thanks Cheryl for a lovely Lunch

Definitely wanted to make this, what with the oranges & jicama, but the jalapeno was a bit too much for me so I substituted half a poblano for the latter ingredient! Still it made for a very tasty salad & a keeper of a recipe! Many thanks! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Healthy Choices ABC cooking game]
