"Great for cleansing the palate between heavy courses or for an invigorating salad any time. Use cilantro, fresh mint, or both."

carrots, shaved into strips using a vegetable peeler
jicama, peeled and cut into thin matchsticks
orange, peeled and thinly sliced
fresh cilantro, or to taste
cracked black pepper to taste
This really is refreshing and a good palate cleanser. No one flavor is overpowering, they all blend well, and it is just a nice light-tasting salad. I used pre-shredded carrots and chopped up a fair amount of cilantro. Mixed/tossed rather than layered the salad. I do wonder whether it might have been a little easier to eat if I had followed the recipe and shaved the carrots myself. The store bought carrot shreds were more like matchsticks and were a little hard to pick up. Thanks!
