Personal Notes:
The dressing can be prepared up to a day ahead. For the salad, you can combine the oranges and jicama up to 8 hours ahead. Add the bananas and toss with the dressing just before serving time. You may want to add a little romaine to give more "body" to salad and red leaf lettuce at Christmas for color.
