This fennel and jicama salad is crazy crunchy, and super light, bright, and refreshing, with a briny punch from feta, black olives, and sun-dried tomatoes. It’s a perfect pick-me-up lunch (add arugula or mixed greens to bulk it up, or even cooked white beans for more protein), or a great dinnertime side to complement healthy grilled or baked fish, or to lighten up meatier meals like Greek Lamb Braised with Tomatoes. You can even use it like a slaw on top of Caramelized Onion and Chickpea Burgers. The pink peppercorns lend a lovely fruity note and extra pop of color to the zippy lemon dressing, but if you can’t find them, feel free to use a bit more cracked black pepper instead.
