    Serves: 8 

    • 450g (1 lb) fresh green beans, trimmed
    • 1 jicama, peeled and cut into matchsticks
    • 1 red pepper, seeds removed, cut into chunks
    • 1 green pepper, seeds removed, cut into chunks
    • 4 carrots, peeled and cut into matchsticks
    • 2 oranges peeled, seeded, sliced into thin wheels
    • 2 cucumbers, seeded, sliced
    • 120ml orange juice
    • 4 tablespoons lemon juice

    Method
    Prep:30min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. Set a pot of salted water on to boil. Set aside a bowl of ice-cold water. When water boils, toss in trimmed green beans. Cook for 2-4 minutes. Drain green beans and place in ice water to set colour and to crisp.
    2. Clean and slice vegetables and orange and arrange on platter.
    3. In a blender combine orange juice, lemon juice, olive oil, salt, paprika, pepper and blend until smooth. Season to taste. Remove from blender and whisk in coriander (or if you'd like a green dressing, blend it right in). Drizzle dressing over salad.

    Substitute:

    If you can't find jicama, you could use water chestnuts, or even white radish (also known as daikon or mooli).
