The main pleasure of salad lies in the way flavors play against each other--sweet lettuce and mustardy vinaigrette, or peppery herbs and unctuous fresh cheeses.
That complexity can also be achieved with less traditional elements. This is a fruity, slightly sweet salad to refresh the palate.
1/2 pound jicama
1/2 cup sliced red radishes
1 small navel orange
1 tablespoon honey
1 1/2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
1 tablespoon oil
