Grated Raw Beet Salad with Jicama, Avocado, and Cilantro

(this recipe is inspired by a salad from Vegetarian Times- Gluten-free Recipe of the Week)

2 cups grated jicama
2 cups grated raw beets (3 medium beets)
1 avocado, thinly sliced
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
1/4 cup toasted pumpkin seeds

My add-ons: grated carrots, raw corn fresh from cob, thinly sliced radishes

3 Tbs. thawed orange juice concentrate
1 Tbs. lime juice
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
1/2 tsp. ground coriander
1 1/2 Tbs. olive oil

If you have a mandolin with different settings, you can use it to julienne the beets, jicama, and carrots.  Feel free to use a metal grater or to even cut them in any form you like and find easiest.  It ends up being a bright and beautiful salad (see photo!) which will impress you and everyone around you.  Talk about eating the rainbow... yum! Enjoy!
