Wow! No fat and it taste good to. I blended the juices, cilantro and a garlic clove with the chile (habanaro)powder. Mix in the jicama to absorb some of the flavor.Placed the jicama on top of the greens then orange slices and onions. A light and very refreshing salad.

You're right, the onion added a lot of zip to this salad and it was very attractive, great colors and textures. The jicama added a great crunchiness. I think next time, I will use a can of mandarin oranges and the juice from same to help make the dressing. The jicama seems to rely heavily on the citrus for flavor and the navel orange just didn't seem flavorful enough. I think that is more a problem with the quality of oranges we have available than any recipe problem. Beautiful salad!

What a light refreshing salad! Mmmm... I did skip the chili powder and the lime juice and added raspberry vinaigrette. I also added matchstick carrots and cucumber sticks for added color and crunch and served it over baby spinach leaves. Mandarin oranges were perfect placed on top. Very pretty salad and very delicious, thanks... Oh and I must tell you I love your blue lady! Cool

YUM! Great taste and healthy too! Made as directed, but left out the cilantro. Made for comfort cafe.

I left out a few things: lettuce, cilantro, chili powder. It was just sort of as I went along, "ah, I don't want that in there." I was probably influenced to leave the lettuce out by the way my mandolin shredded the jicama instead of the juliene strips I was expecting! And I'm not big on the other 2 ingredients. But I liked it this way! I just wish I'd had more lime juice for it. I went to the fridge and found I only had 1/2 a lime! Nice and crunchy salad, and sweet too!
