Arugula is actually a member of the cancer-fighting cruciferous vegetable family. That alone makes it a wonderful salad choice, but add vitamin C-rich jicama to the mix and you have a simple salad that’s...

Ingredients

Chef Tips

If you can’t find white balsamic vinegar, as a substitute add 1 teaspoon honey to 1 tablespoon of white wine vinegar and blend with the other dressing ingredients.

If you can’t fine fresh tarragon, don’t use dried. The taste is too strong. It’s better to use a little fresh parsley or cilantro if you like it.

Unlike black or white peppercorns, pink peppercorns are very soft and can be eaten whole, so don’t be tempted to substitute!
