Arugula is actually a member of the cancer-fighting cruciferous vegetable family. Kudos if you already knew that. 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 not only bursting with nutrients, but utterly delicious too. Jicama has a crunchy sweetness to it that is a perfect complement to tangy arugula, and if you choose to use the pink peppercorns, you’ll add an extra spicy exotic crunch to your salad.
1. In a bowl, beat the olive oil, vinegar and salt together. Stir in the tarragon. Add the jicama and toss to mix. Set aside in a cool place until you are ready to eat. Pile the arugula on top and toss together. Eat immediately.
