In honor of Mr. Rogers being a vegetarian, I am posting this recipe to coincide with the reading of The Good Neighbor: The Life and Work of Fred Rogers.
6 to 8 cups mixed salad greens
1 (15 oz) can Mandarin oranges, drained
1 (15 oz) can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 carrot, shredded
½ cup red bell pepper, diced
12 cherry tomatoes, halved
3 green onions, thinly sliced
¾ cup jicama, peeled and diced
2 Tbsp fresh cilantro, coarsely chopped (optional)
2 avocados, diced (optional)
Place all ingredients in a large bowl and toss. Serve with your favorite vinaigrette.
