For this elegant salad, sweet-tasting fennel bulbs are thinly sliced and tossed with salty toasted pistachios, sweet oranges and tangy lime juice. Jícama or radishes add another layer of texture and earthy flavor.
Delicious and healthy!
A friend made this salad for an outing last summer and I've thought about it ever since, so was delighted to find the recipe. It is so different and just delicious. We've made it with radishes instead of jicama, and cilantro, and I think adding a little bit of orange zest to the oil and lime juice adds an extra level of flavor.
Pros: Wonderful use of fresh ingredients

Awesome, with minor change
I made this salad with jicama instead of radishes; the first time with cilantro and the second time, with fresh mint. Go with the mint - it's incredible! IMO, the cilantro was overpowering and tasted like dirt.
Pros: Fresh, different, flavorful

Very refreshing and easy to make with the help of a mandoline slicer. I made the radish version and think it would be quite different with jicama. I used 2 small fennel bulbs instead of the single bulb called for in the recipe.
