Chef: Timaree Hagenburger, The Nutrition Professor
Makes: 8 cups
Prep Time: 30 minutes
4 c watermelon, ¼” diced
4 c jicama, well peeled and cut into ¼” dice
Zest from 1 orange
I/2 c fresh orange juice (from about 1 ½ oranges)
Zest from 1 lime
¼ c fresh lime juice (from about 1 1 /2 limes)
1-2 T maple syrup or date syrup
½ t ground black pepper
½-1/3 c fresh mint leaves (torn into tiny pieces)
Salt to taste (dash-optional)
Make a dressing in a small bowl by whisking together the zest from orange and lime, orange juice, lime juice, maple/date syrup and black pepper.
In a large bowl, combine watermelon, Jicama and mint.
Drizzle with all of dressing and carefully stir until well combined.
Taste and season with a dash of salt if desired.
Always zest citrus with a microplane (one of my favorite cooking tools), BEFORE squeezing the fruit for juice.
Watch Timaree shop for Jicama at the Farmer’s Market (California Bountiful TV) and then, make the recipe.
