Ingredients

  • 3 blood (or normal) oranges
  • 2 x 125g balls mozzarella , the best you can afford (or burrara, if you can get it), torn
  • 2 big handfuls rocket
  • ½ red onion , thinly sliced
  • crusty bread , to serve (optional)

For the dressing

  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 2 tsp caster sugar
  • 2 tsp wholegrain mustard
  • 1 tsp mustard seed (black or brown)
  • 1 tsp poppy seed

Method

  • STEP 1

    Finely zest 1 of the oranges and mix with the dressing ingredients and some seasoning.

  • STEP 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.

  • STEP 3

    Drizzle the dressing over the salad and eat with crusty bread, if you like.
