– Peel the jicama using a paring knife or by pulling the skins off and placing the knife on the top part of the jicama and pulling down the skins. Remove any excess skin with a potato peeler. Dice the jicama into small bite sizes, place in a large bowl, and squeeze half of the lime juice over it to prevent browning and add flavor. Set aside.
– Peel the oranges, slice them, and then cut the slices in four. Add them to the jicama.
– Peel mandarins with your hands, separate into segments. To remove the seeds, cut along the edge of the side column of the segment, as shown in the picture. Once you cut it, the seeds will come out easily. Place all your deseeded mandarin segments in the bowl with the rest of the fruit.
– Now, in a smaller bowl, mix orange juice, grapefruit juice, the rest of the lime juice, ground pepper, cilantro, and salt. Mix well and pour over fruit. Gently stir everything. You can refrigerate this salad for a couple of hours to allow the flavors to blend, or you can eat it immediately.
