Mandarin & Jicama Salad

  • Author: American Institute for Cancer Research
  • Prep Time: 15
  • Total Time: 15

Description

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.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 medium jicama (about 3/4 lb), peeled and cut into 1 1/2 inch matchsticks
  • 2 medium carrots, peeled coarsely, grated or julienned
  • 3 Rascal mandarins, peeled and segmented
  • 1/2 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp fresh squeezed Rascal Mandarin juice
  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • 1 Tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice or to taste
  • Salt
  • 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

  • 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.

Description

Most of the time, “accessories” like sauces, salsas, dressings, marinades, and chutneys get little, if any, thought. Yet often it is these little things that make the difference between an ordinary meal and an extraordinary one. This lowfat salad citrusy dressing can be made spicier by adding more than just a dash of cayenne. But as is, it is light and sweet and especially suited to leafy greens. Citrus fruits, such as mandarins, oranges and lemons, provide powerful Phytochemicals like flavonoids and polyphenols which may prevent inflammation and boost production of detoxifying enzymes in the body.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 Tbsp cider vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp freshly squeezed mandarin juice, may substitute fresh orange juice
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • 1 Tbsp canola oil
  • 1/8 tsp onion powder
  • Dash of cayenne, or to taste
  • Salt to taste

Instructions

  1. In a small bowl, combine all of the ingredients.
  2. Blend vigorously with a wire whisk.
  3. Serve over salad or fresh cut-up vegetables.
  4. Store in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. Whisk thoroughly before serving.

Notes

  • Citrus fruits 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.
