watercress, jicama and tangelo salad

you may have seen on my instagram this morning that i’m on day 1 of a 3 week ayurvedic spring cleanse. it’s basically a rest for my digestive system and spring cleaning for my insides!  so i may not be posting as many recipes as normal over the course of the next few weeks, or maybe i’ll just be posting some really healthy detoxifying meals.  but i’m happy to say i have a couple of recipe posts lined up already (ahead of the game for once!)  starting with this fresh spring salad. simple, light, delicious and a perfect salad to enjoy during a lunch break outside.  it may not be on my cleanse menu but i do think it’s a great healthy meal to start getting you ready for summer.  hope you love!  xx- sarah     {more after the jump}


1 bunch watercress

1 1/2 cups diced jicama

2 1/2 tangelos

2 tablespoons minced shallot

1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

3 tablespoons white wine vinegar



– peel and dice the jicama

– cut roots of watercress (if applicable), rinse and pat dry

– peel 2 tangelos and combine slices with watercress and jicama in serving bowl

– for the dressing:  combine shallot, olive oil, white wine vinegar and juice from 1/2 tangelo (more of less to taste), and a tiny pinch of sea salt.  mix thoroughly

– dress salad and serve with fresh cracked pepper

– enjoy!

    I was wondering what the measurement for the Jicama is? I bet the 1/12 of a cup isnt it =] happy typo friday!
