My Favorite Spring Salad

Beautiful, isn't it?

I decided to mix all my favorite salad ingredients together and came up with something amazing!I have a new love: Jicama! I simply love the freshness and crunch of that root vegetable. The taste and texture is somewhat between a potato and apple. It is perfect julienned in salads.

Here are the ingredients, however feel free to add whatever you have on hand..

-Spring salad mix
-A handful of Spring shoots, (pea, onion, beet, or whatever is available)
-Jicama, cut into matchsticks
-Thinly sliced red onion
-Quartered strawberries
-Toasted pine nuts
