Jicama Salad with Poppy Seed Dressing

There's nothing like a colorful salad to make a springtime dinner complete. Enjoy the gorgeous crunch of this fresh, healthy recipe by our own Chef Avram Wiseman.

Salad Ingredients:

Jicama 12 oz.
Red onions 10 oz.
Naval oranges 3 ea.
Poppy seed dressing 1 cup

Dressing Ingredients:

Honey 3 oz.
Paprika 1 Tablespoon
Ketchup 2 Tablespoons
Dijon mustard 2 Tablespoons
Orange juice 2 Tablespoons
Ground black pepper 1 Teaspoon
Kosher salt 1 oz.
Wine vinegar 3 oz.
Onion chopped 2 oz.
Canola oil 1 cup
Poppy seed 1 and 1/2 tablespoons

Dressing Procedure:

Place all ingredients except the oil into the bowl of a food processor.
Slowly drizzle in the oil while running the machine. Season to taste.

Salad Procedure:

Using a sharp paring knife, peel the jicama. Cut the jicama into a fine julienne cut measuring 1/8” by 1/8” by 2 inches. Place into a clean bowl.

Peel the red onions and trim out the root ball. Cut the onion into similar 1/8” by 1/8” strips. Add the onion to the Jicama.

Using a sharp paring knife, peel the oranges very carefully. Remove the segments (suprem├ęs) without any seeds or membranes. Add to the cut salad.

Toss the cut vegetables with enough poppy seed dressing to lightly coat. Let seasoning penetrate for at least 15 minutes. Serve cold!
