We just had a simple but delicious arugula salad for lunch today. My husband and I love arugula. It is always the main ingredient in our tossed salad. Besides arugula, there were also Jicama, pine nuts, orange, and blueberries in this salad. Jicama is a root vegetable. It doesn't look so appealing as it has a very rough skin on the outside. Don't judge by the look. It is a fabulous and tasty root vegetable. I love its sweet and crunchy taste. It goes well with either vegetable or fruit salad. Remember, the skin of the jicama has to be removed before you eat it.
4 cups arugula
1/2 cup jicama - peeled and chopped
1 orange - peeled and cut into small pieces
1/4 cup blueberries
1/4 cup pine nuts - toasted
1 to 2 tablespoons honey
4 tablespoons orange juice
- Combine arugula, jicama, orange, blueberries and pine nuts in a salad bowl.
- Mix honey and orange juice well.
- Toss the salad with the honey and orange dressing.
Makes two servings.
