  • 4 cups snow peas (about 12 ounces), trimmed
  • 2 oranges
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 tablespoon minced shallot
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ small jícama, peeled and cut into matchsticks (about 1 cup; see Tip)


  • Active

  • Ready In

  1. Bring 1 inch of water to a boil in a saucepan fitted with a steamer basket. Have a bowl of ice water by the stove. Steam snow peas until tender-crisp, about 3 minutes. Transfer the peas to the ice water. Drain.
  2. Cut peels and white pith from oranges. Working over a bowl, cut the segments from surrounding membranes. Squeeze the peels and membranes over the bowl to extract about 3 tablespoons juice before discarding them. Transfer the segments with a slotted spoon to a small bowl. Whisk oil, vinegar, shallot, sugar and salt into the juice. Return the segments to the bowl along with the snow peas and jicama; toss with the dressing.
  • Tip: Jícama is a round root vegetable with brown skin, white flesh and a slightly sweet, nutty flavor. Look for it with other produce.

I made it pretty much as stated and it was a hit! The hostess liked so much that she asked for the recipe to serve at Easter! I used mandarin oranges because they’re easier to separate. I used OJ for the dressing.
