Ingredients

Dressing

2
tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
3
tablespoons vegetable oil
2
tablespoons lime juice
1
teaspoon sugar
1/4
teaspoon salt
1/8
teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne)

Salad

2
oranges, peeled, sliced crosswise
1/2
cucumber, thinly sliced
1
small red and/or yellow bell pepper, cut into thin strips
1/2
medium jicama, peeled, julienned (matchstick-cut) 3x1/4x1/4 inch (about 2 cups)
1/8
teaspoon chili powder, if desired
Fresh cilantro sprigs, if desired

Directions

  • 1 In blender, place all dressing ingredients. Cover; blend until smooth.
  • 2 On serving platter, alternate slices of orange and cucumber around edge. Mound bell pepper and jicama in center. Drizzle with dressing. Sprinkle with chili powder and/or cilantro sprigs.
Tips  

Peeling cucumbers isn't necessary unless the peel is tough or heavily waxed.

Prepare the dressing a few days in advance and store it, covered, in the refrigerator. Prepare the salad ingredients a day ahead, and refrigerate them separately in small plastic bags. Just before serving, arrange the salad on a platter. Shake the dressing well, and drizzle it over the salad.
