Makes 6 side-dish servings

- 6 torn mixed salad greens
- 3 oranges or 2 grapefruit, peeled, sectioned, and seeded 1 1/2 cups peeled jicama cut into thin strips
- 1 medium red onion, sliced and separated into ring 1/3 cup
- Citrus Vinaigrette or another flavor vinaigrette

Choose from four fabulous flavors of vinaigrette to add a gourmet touch to this salad. Because orange juice concentrate replaces part of the oil included in a vinaigrette, these vinaigrettes have only 2 g of fat and 34 calories per tablespoon instead of 6 g of fat and calories.

In a large salad bowl combine torn mixed greens, orange or grapefruit sections, jicama, and onion ring. Drizzle with the vinaigrette; toss. Serve at once.
