Jicama-Watercress-Avocado Salad with Spicy Citrus Vinaigrette
Posted Jan 10 2011 1:12pm
Before making this salad, I was incredibly confused. I didn’t know what jicama or watercress was. But I love trying new things so…here it goes!
The Jicama-Watercress-Avocado Salad with Spicy Citrus Vinaigrette (pg. 83) actually really surprised me. Jicama is a root vegetable so I expected potato, but it actually tastes sweet. Kind of like carrots. And the watercress taste more or less like a bitter arugula which went great with this salad.
Even the spicy citrus dressing was delicious! It tasted kind of asian from the strong flavor of the sesame oil and made the whole thing taste like vegan asian fusion! I love it!
What are some weird combination that work for you in a salad?
