Jicama and Blood Orange Salad

blood oranges

Our Jicama and Blood Orange Salad recipe pairs jicama with blood oranges, red onions, mango, fresh green chiles and cilantro.  Blood oranges are the best for this salad but if you can't find them you can substitute a Cara Cara navel orange that also has brightly colored flesh.  Prepare the salad a couple of hours ahead so the ingredient flavors have time to develop.

Peel the jicama including the fibrous layer just beneath the skin. Thinly slice the flesh and then cut into 2-inch strips. Place in a bowl.

Peel the blood oranges and cut segments by trimming between the membranes to remove the sections, working over the bowl with the jicama to catch the juices.

Add remaining ingredients to the bowl and toss gently. Chill 2 hours and serve.

This salad is a wonderful addition to a Mexican meal be it a nice chicken mole or even some enchiladas.
