  1. Toast the coriander seeds in a frying pan. Leave to cool a little, then roughly crush using a pestle and mortar.

  2. Grate the zest from ½ an orange, then segment all 3, reserving the juice. Mix the seeds with the oil, vinegar, 1½ tbsp orange juice and the zest, then season.

  3. Tear the mozzarella into large-ish pieces and arrange on a platter with the orange segments and lamb’s lettuce. Drizzle over the dressing and scatter the mint leaves on top. Serve with crusty bread, if you like.
