Snow Pea, Orange, and Jicama Salad

4 cups snow peas or snap peas (about 12 ounces)
2 oranges
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon white-wine vinegar
1 tablespoon minced shallot or red onion
1 teaspoon sugar
1⁄4 teaspoon salt
small jicama, peeled and cut into small cubes

Directions: Bring 1 inch of water to a boil in a saucepan fitted with a steamer basket. Have a bowl of ice water by the stove. Steam snow peas until tender-crisp, about 3 minutes. Transfer the peas to the ice water. Drain. Cut peels and white pith from oranges. Working over a bowl, cut the segments from surrounding membranes. Squeeze the peels and membranes over the bowl to extract about 3 tablespoons juice before discarding them. Transfer the segments with a slotted spoon to a small bowl. Whisk oil, vinegar, shallot, sugar and salt into the juice. Return the segments to the bowl along with the snow peas and jícama; toss with the dressing.
