Ingredients

Vinaigrette

  • 1/4 cup olive or vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 or 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped

Salad

  • 8 cups bite-size pieces mixed salad greens
  • 1 cup raspberries
  • 1/2 small jicama, peeled, cut into julienne strips (1 cup)
  • 2 medium green onions, sliced (2 tablespoons)
  • Lime wedges, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    In tightly covered container, shake vinaigrette ingredients. Shake again before using.
  • 2
    In large bowl, toss salad greens, raspberries, jicama, onions and vinaigrette. Just before serving, squeeze juice from lime wedges lightly over salad.

  • You will need to purchase 3 limes for 3 tablespoons of juice. To get the most juice from each lime, roll it around on the countertop a few times while applying gentle pressure, or pop it in the microwave for a few seconds.
  • Make the vinaigrette up to a couple of days ahead of time and refrigerate it. Shake before serving.
  • Use a small cookie cutter to cut the jicama into cactus shapes.
