Whisk to combine first 5 dressing ingredients. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Set aside.

Salad

With a sharp paring knife, peel the oranges and remove the white layer of pith. Cut oranges into 1/4-inch rounds. Halve the avocados and remove the seed. Using a large spoon, carefully scoop out the avocado halves and cut into thin, uniform slices. Arrange the avocado and orange slices, overlapping, around each of 6 salad plates. Drizzle with a little of the dressing. Peel the jícama and cut it into 1/8-inch slices, then cut the slices into 1/8-inch matchsticks. Toss the jicama with the raisins, cilantro and remaining dressing. Mound the mixture in the center of each salad.
