Strawberry-Jicama Toss

Fruits and veggies never looked more beautiful than when tossed with poppy seed dressing in this spectacular salad.

Strawberry Jicama Toss

Yield: 8 servings (about 1 cup each)


Tangy Poppy Seed Dressing

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon seasoned rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon poppy seed
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard


  • 6 cups bite size pieces mixed salad greens
  • 1/2 pint strawberries, sliced (1 cup)
  • 1 cup finely shredded Chinese (Napa) cabbage
  • 3/4 cup 1 x 1/4 inch pieces peeled jicama
  • 2 kiwifruit, peeled, cut lengthwise in half and sliced


  1. In a tightly covered container, shake all dressing ingredients until well blended.
  2. In a large serving bowl, mix all salad ingredients.
  3. Add dressing; toss to coat.


Just for fun, add a few other berries to the strawberries. Raspberries or blueberries would make a pretty addition.

Strawberries lose much of their bright, fresh flavor when they're soaked in water. Minimize this flavor loss by washing strawberries quickly, rubbing with a damp paper towel.
