  • 1/2 teaspoon salt-free garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup olive oil

  1. In a small food processor (or blender), combine the dill, garlic powder, pepper, olive oil, and orange juice and pulse until smooth.

  2. Peel and cut the jicama into french-fry shapes, about 1/2 in [12 mm] thick and 3 in [7.5 cm] long. 

  3. In a medium bowl or a shallow container, mix the jicama with the dill oil. 

  4. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes, or up to overnight, before serving.
