Method

  1. Finely zest 1 of the oranges and mix with the dressing ingredients and some seasoning.
  2. Cut the peel from the top and bottom of each orange, then sit each flat on a board. Using a small knife, cut away the peel and pith from each orange, working in downward strokes all the way around. Thinly slice the oranges and scatter over a platter with the mozzarella, rocket and onion.
  3. Drizzle the dressing over the salad and eat with crusty bread, if you like.
