Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Combine vinegar, oil, salt and red pepper (or ground pepper) in a screw-top jar. Cover and shake well.

  • Divide spinach among six salad plates. Use a vegetable peeler to make shavings from the jicama. Top the spinach with the jicama, grapefruit and avocado. Drizzle with vinaigrette.


Tip: Cut the peel off the grapefruit using a sharp knife, making sure to remove all the bitter white pith.
