  • 1 large jicama, peeled and julienned
  • 2 ripe avocados, sliced
  • 2 oranges, peeled and segments removed
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons honey or agave syrup
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 red onion, thinly sliced (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons toasted pumpkin seeds or sunflower seeds (for garnish)


  1. Prepare the Salad Components: In a large mixing bowl, combine the julienned jicama, sliced avocados, and orange segments. If using, add the thinly sliced red onion for an extra crunch and flavor.
  2. Make the Citrus Vinaigrette: In a small bowl, whisk together the lime juice, olive oil, and honey (or agave syrup) until well combined. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Dress the Salad: Pour the vinaigrette over the salad ingredients in the large bowl. Gently toss to ensure all the components are evenly coated with the dressing.
  4. Add Fresh Herbs: Sprinkle the chopped cilantro over the salad and toss lightly once more to distribute the herbs throughout the salad.
  5. Garnish and Serve: Transfer the salad to a serving platter or individual plates. Garnish with toasted pumpkin seeds or sunflower seeds for a bit of crunch.
  6. Enjoy: Serve the salad immediately to enjoy the freshness and crispness of the ingredients.


  • To prevent the avocados from browning, add them to the salad just before dressing and serving.
  • For an extra pop of flavor, consider adding a sprinkle of chili powder or a dash of hot sauce to the vinaigrette.
  • This salad is best enjoyed fresh but can be refrigerated for a few hours before serving. If preparing in advance, add the avocado and dressing just before serving.
