Southern Living


1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup orange juice
1/4 cup cranberry-orange relish
1 small shallot, peeled and chopped
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 large jícama, peeled
2 (5-ounce) packages gourmet mixed salad greens
2 cups sliced fresh strawberries
1/2 cup sweetened dried cranberries, finely chopped
2 large navel oranges, peeled and sectioned (optional)
Garnish: shaved Pecorino Romano or Parmesan cheese


Process first 8 ingredients in a blender until smooth, stopping to scrape down sides.

Cut jícama into cubes, or, if desired, cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices, then cut with a 1 1/2-inch star-shaped cutter.

Place jícama, salad greens, strawberries, cranberries, and, if desired, orange sections in a large bowl. Drizzle with vinaigrette, and gently toss to coat. Garnish, if desired.

NOTE: For testing purposes only, we used Ocean Spray Cran-Fruit Crushed Fruit For Chicken (Cranberry Orange flavor) for the cranberry-orange relish. Look for it near the cranberry sauces in your grocery store.
