Mandarin & Jicama Salad

Mandarin & Jicama Salad
Serves 8
The cool, refreshing taste of this salad comes rom fresh mandarins and jicama, a root vegetable now widely available. Mandarins are famous for their vitamin C content and they also contain too many cancer fighting phytochemcials to name. Jicama adds additional vitamin C and lots of fiber. The white flesh of this crunchy, mild flavored vegetable tempers the acidity of the mandarins, provides a nice color contrast, and adds texture.

Ingredients
  1. 1 medium jicama (about 3/4 lb), peeled and cut into 1 1/2 inch matchsticks
  2. 2 medium carrots, peeled coarsely, grated or julienned
  3. 3 Rascal mandarins, peeled and segmented
  4. 1/2 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  5. 2 Tbsp fresh squeezed Rascal Mandarin juice
  6. 2 Tbsp honey
  7. 1 Tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice or to taste
  8. Salt
  9. 8 fresh mint leaves, thinly slivered
Instructions
  1. In a medium bowl, combine the jicama, carrots, and mandarin segments.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the olive oil, orange juice, honey, and lime juice and add salt to taste.
  3. Whisk the dressing and pout over the jicama mixture.
  4. Toss to coat.
  5. Refrigerate the salad for 2 to 3 hours.
  6. Top with mint leaves before serving
Notes
  1. Did you know? Like other oranges, mandarin oranges are excellent sources of vitamin C, although not as high in this valuable nutrient as navel oranges, even comparing equal portions. However, mandarins provide greater amounts of two antioxidant phytochemicals: beta-carotene and beta-cryptoxanthing.

Meyer Lemon Barley

Meyer Lemon Barley
Serves 10
Barley, one of the first grains our ancestors grew, is usually confined to use in vegetable soup. But its slightly chewy and pasta-like texture makes it a versatile ingredient in all kinds of dishes. This chilled side salad contains some protein and a high amount of soluble fiber. Meyer lemon juice and zest provide cancer fighting flavonoids and polyphenols which may prevent inflammation and boost production of detoxifying enzymes in the body. Give barley a try by serving this lemony side dish with fish, poultry, white beans, or vegetables.

Ingredients
  1. 1 cup pearl barley, rinsed and drained
  2. 3 cups fat-free, reduced sodium chicken or vegetable broth
  3. 1 large garlic clove, minced
  4. 1/4 cup chopped loosely packed flat leaf parsley
  5. 2 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  6. 1/2 Tbsp lemon zest
  7. 1 Tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  8. 1/8 teaspoon fennel seed, whole
  9. Salt and freshly ground pepper

  3. Add the garlic and cook for 5 more minutes.
  4. Transfer barley to a fine strainer, drain well, and transfer to bowl.
  5. Cover barley and refrigerate until chilled completely, about 4 hours.
  6. The barley can be refrigerated for up to 3 days before adding the remaining ingredients.

  8. Toss well to combine
Notes
  1. Citrus fruits, such as Meyer Lemons, provide powerful Phytochemicals like flavonoids and polyphenols. Flavoniods can be found in apples, citrus fruits, onions, soybeans and soy products (tofu, soy milk, edamame, etc.), coffee and tea and may inhibit inflammation and tumor growth; may aid immunity and boost production of detoxifying enzymes in the body. Polyphenols can be found in green tea, grapes, wine, berries, citrus fruits, apples, whole grains and peanuts and may prevent cancer formation, prevent inflammation and work as antioxidants. These powerful phytochemicals, are naturally occurring plant chemicals (phyto means plant in Greek). They provide plants with color, odor and flavor. Once we eat them, however, research shows they can influence the chemical processes inside our bodies in helpful ways.
