Author Notes: It's drab and dreary outside and I am hoping for some sunshine. So in a bid to coax some sunshine out from the clouds, here is my (anti) weather inspired salad. Let's hope this does it!
2 medium golden beets 1 medium jicama 1 stalk scallion 2 Tbsps. chopped cilantro 1 Tbsp. toasted sunflower seeds (optional)
1 Tbsp. Extra-Virgin Olive oil 2 Tsps. orange juice 1/4 tsp. cumin powder 1/4 tsp. coriander powder 1/2 tsp. sugar salt and pepper to taste
- Peel and cut the beets into thin slices, and then stack the slices to cut into thin matchsticks.
- Peel and cut jicama into thin slices, and then stack the slices to cut into thin matchsticks
- Finely slice the scallions; both the green and white parts Mix the beets, jicama, scallions and the chopped cilantro in a bowl.
- In a separate bowl, mix all the dressing ingredients and mix it in with the salad. Sprinkle some sunflower seeds if using. Toss and serve.
