If you can't find watercress, you can use spinach or arugula.

3/4 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup fresh lime juice
1/2 teaspoon grated lime zest
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
1 jalapeño pepper, chopped
1/2 teaspoon salt

1 jícama (about 1 pound), peeled and cut into sticks
1 bunch watercress, large lower stems broken off (about 2 cups)
4 romaine leaves, cut crosswise in 1/4-inch slices
1 mango, cut into cubes
4 ounces queso blanco or feta cheese, crumbled

Instructions

  1. Combine all dressing ingredients in a blender; cover and process until smooth.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the jícama, watercress, romaine and mango. Drizzle with 1/4 cup dressing; toss to combine. Sprinkle with cheese. Serve immediately. (You’’ll have some dressing left.)
