Ingredients

  • 1 orange
  • 1/4 jicama (12 oz/375 g)
  • 4 cups mixed salad greens
  • 2 cups arugula leaves
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon flaked sea salt (such as Maldon sea salt)
Dressing:
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons lime juice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon liquid honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 pinch pepper

Method

Working over large bowl to catch juice, cut off rind and outer membrane of orange. Cut between membrane and pulp to release fruit into bowl, squeezing membranes to extract all juice. Remove orange segments and set aside. Remove all but 1 tbsp (15 mL) orange juice from bowl and reserve for another use.

Dressing: Whisk vegetable oil, lemon and lime juices, honey, Dijon mustard and pepper into reserved orange juice in bowl. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 24 hours; whisk.)

Peel jicama; cut into 1-1/2- x 1/4-inch (4 cm x 5 mm) sticks. Add to dressing along with salad greens, arugula and red onion; toss to coat.

Garnish salad with reserved orange segments. Sprinkle with salt.
