Preparation time: 15 mins.
Main Utensil: sharp knife
For 4 people you need:
3-4 large oranges
French or vinaigrette dressing:
1 teaspoon made mustard
scant 1/4 cup oil
1-2 tablespoons vinegar or lemon juice
1. Cut the peel away from the oranges in such a way that you remove the white pith as well – this is quite difficult to do unless you have a very sharp knife. Cut the segments of orange away from the skin and remove any seeds.
2. To make French dressing: Blend mustard with other seasonings and the sugar, work in the oil with a wooden or metal spoon, then finally add the vinegar or lemon juice. A larger amount can be made and stored in a screw-topped jar.
3. Arrange the segments of orange on a bed of lettuce and top with a little French dressing.
TO SERVE: AN orange salad can be served with prawns or shrimp, hard cooked eggs, and radishes as the picture. It can also be served with duck or goose in place of or as well as vegetables.
TO VARY: Grapefruit may be used in place of orange, but sweeten the dressing a little bit more.
