2 cups oranges, cut into small pieces
2 teaspoons olive oil OR vegetable oil
2 tablespoons 100% orange juice

2 teaspoons lime juice
1/4 teaspoon salt

- Jicama is often a seasonal ingredient found in the summer. If jicama is not available near you, try substituting 3 cups green Granny Smith apples, chopped into small pieces.
- To prepare jicama, gently peel off brown outer skin using a peeler, as you would a potato.
