Clementine Jicama Salad

Today for lunch I experimented with a Clementine Jicama salad. The flavors in this salad are really interesting together and I think you will really like it. 

 Clementine Jicama Salad 
½ teaspoon chopped garlic
¼ cup fresh lime juice
3 tablespoons olive oil
½ teaspoon sugar
½ teaspoon ground pepper
8 clementines
1 pound jicama, peeled and cut into ¼ inch matchsticks (~ 3 cups)
1 red onion, thinly sliced
¾ cup packed cilantro
½ cup queso fresco or mild feta, crumbled
⅓ cup sunflower seeds

1. Mince and mash garlic to a paste, then whisk together with lime juice, oil, sugar, and pepper in a
large bowl.
2. Add clementines, jicama, onion, and cilantro. Toss gently.
3. Sprinkle with cheese and sunflower seeds. Serve immediately.
Yield: 8 servings - Unless you let your baby help you with the salad and she had decided it is her new most favorite food in the world. Then it will feed slightly less than that.
Her favorite part to pick out and eat are the red onions! She is her daddy's girl. - and I don't mind kissing either of them (onion breath and all)
