Dr Oz: Grapefruit & Jicama Salad Recipe

Dr Oz did a segment called 5 Minute Miracles to Fight Fat, and one of his guests was Iron Chef Cat Cora, author of Cat Cora’s Classics with a Twist: Fresh Takes on Favorite Dishes.  She gave Doctor Oz a Flat Belly Salad Recipe that will help all of us to lose weight, without sacrificing the flavor.  Cat Cora’s Grapefruit and Jicama Salad Recipe sounds so refreshing and perfect, especially as we head into the warm summer months.
