Avocado, Orange, Jicama

Avocado, Orange, Jicama. It’s one of those holy trinities, right? Maybe you don’t agree, but I happen to love the combination. This weekend I wanted to make a salad combining those ingredients, but didn’t see exactly what I wanted. I ended up throwing one together and using a recipe for dressing from epicurious. It was perfect. Just what I was looking for. I don’t have a recipe for the salad itself, but it was a big pile of lettuce topped with 1/2 a sliced jicama, 1/2 a sliced avocado and 1 sliced navel orange. The whole thing was tossed in this dressing spiked with cumin and curry and sprinkled with some pepitas. I plan to eat it a few more times this week.

Here’s the dressing:
1/4 cup orange juice
1/2 teaspoon curry powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon sugar
2 tablespoons white-wine vinegar
2 tablespoons olive oil

In a bowl whisk together orange juice, curry powder, salt, cumin, sugar, and vinegar. Add oil in a stream, whisking until emulsified. Pour over salad and dig in!

  1. Smitten Kitchen has a ginger carrot dressing posted today. I bet that would work well with this salad also.
