Arugula And Jicama Salad

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

  1. Combine arugula, jicama, orange, blueberries and pine nuts in a salad bowl.
  2. Mix honey and orange juice well.  
  3. Toss the salad with the honey and orange dressing.
Makes two servings.
