"I made this as a side dish with some grilled basil chicken and spicy Italian chicken sausages; it was perfect! If you don't like spicy food, just cut back on the Thai chiles. My boyfriend and I loved it!" — Lindsey-Lou

jicama, peeled and julienned
navel oranges, peeled and cut into chunks
red bell pepper, cut into bite-size pieces
hothouse cucumber, diced
sweet yellow peppers, sliced
sweet orange peppers, sliced
radishes, thinly sliced
Thai chile peppers, minced
jalapeno pepper, diced
ground black pepper to taste
This is GREAT! Crunchy and fresh, and perfect with a warm spicy dish, or it would be great with some grilled chicken for a summer dinner. I did add fresh grated citrus zest on top and that made it. We couldn't find the Thai chiles and substituted all jalapeno. Also, don't skimp on the black pepper! This is SPICY - not for the tame palate.
I made this recipe with a few substitutions: I had no navel oranges so used a can of mandarin oranges. I also had red bell pepper and 1 orange and 1 yellow anaheim and 1 jalapeno. Everything else was the same. It made for a gorgeous salad and was quite delish! Served it with my homemade tortilla soup. It was perfect and even better the next day.
We paired this with burgers, and it provided great balance. This salad has a fantastic, simple flavor, and it's beautiful. I recommend adding a splash of oj and red wine vinegar if you like your salad with a little dressing.
