We LOVED this! The PICKY ONE is away this week & claims to not like jicama so the timing is perfect. ;) My 14 yr old happily ate her portion. This has everything...sweet, crunchy, spicy, tart...yummm. I used lime juice & white vinegar. I almost used coconut vinegar & next time I will. <br/>I used 1/2 large jalapeno since I had it. I only used 2 oranges & 1/2 a small jicama - if I'd added more, it would have been to jicama-ey. I subbed a shallot for the onion. Thank you for sharing! Made for Culinary Quest 2014/Cruisin' Culinary Queens. :)

This was simply fantastic! I loved the fresh dressing - all the flavour elements were so good in this. Served with bbq'd beef with chimichurri and we couldn't eat enough!

This was one wonderful salad! Bright fresh flavors, with a dash of bold thrown in for good measure -- A great combination of sweet, savory and crunchy. I made it exactly as written (except for substituting jalapeno peppers) and plan to make it again ... soon! I can see this as a great one dish lunch. Thank you for posting WiGal. It's a keeper!

OUTSTANDING SALAD, but then both of us here really like the combo of jicama & oranges! Call me chicken (I don't care), but I absolutely had to reduce the HOT-HOT, so used poblano chilies instead of the serranos! And, I'm keeping the recipe around ~ Thanks for posting it!

Lovely! The addition of sour orange juice (i used the lime and vinegar) made this delish. Nice blend of flavor. Made for holiday tag.

I enjoyed this sunny salad with dinner. I used regular orange juice with a splash of lemon juice. I also added a pinch of coriander. Yes mon! Made for the Epicurean Queens ZWT 2009.
