After making this lovely salad, you won’t want to relegate nutritious beets and sweet potatoes to the side of the plate. The contrast of tender and crunchy vegetables is fantastic.—Country Woman Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin
This unique salad goes fast at potlucks. It's pretty with the broccoli, mushrooms, red onions and olives. It has a great crunch, and the dressing is quick to make. When time is short and you want something delicious, this recipe fills the bill.

Stephanie Homme and her family in Baton Rouge, Louisiana are real fans of jicama. “It’s a Mexican root vegetable that’s like a cross between a turnip and sweet potato,” she explains. “It’s juicy, sweet and adds crunch and heat to this wonderful salad with feisty Mexican flair.”
Fruit tossed with feta? U-betcha, nothing betta’! Fresh mint, cilantro and parsley add the perfect pop. I’m always looking for something different to serve my mom, who’s a vegetarian—and she loved this! —Jade Bausell, Miami
