  • STEP 1

    Up to 2 days ahead, shake all the dressing ingredients together in a jar. Season and chill.

  • STEP 2

    Up to a day ahead, peel and deseed the orange. Cut the segments from the membrane and chill.

  • STEP 3

    Up to an hour ahead, slice the chicory in half diagonally so you get loose leaves and a solid stalk end. The leaves will be easy to separate, thinly slice the stalks, add the orange, lamb’s lettuce and watercress. Chill until needed.
