Orange, Mozzarella and Mint Salad
This is perhaps the most lush and juicy small salad for two. Highly recommend serving this with a pasta dish for dinner, or perhaps an afternoon lunch accompanied by a cheeky glass of rosé. Please enjoy alongside some crusty bread and olive oil!
This recipe will serve 2 people, multiply the quantities to serve as a starter for more people!
1 large orange, segmented
1 bunch of fresh mint
1/2 a small red onion, finely sliced
1 ball of fresh buffalo mozzarella
a handful of nuts and seeds (I used almonds, linseeds and sunflower seeds)
3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
2 tsp sherry vinegar
salt and freshly cracked black pepper
crusty bread, to serve (optional)
Toast the crusty bread, if you are using. In a small mixing jug combine olive oil, sherry vinegar and a little orange zest. Stir to combine and set aside.
In a salad serving bowl add orange segments, mozzarella, red onion, mint, nuts and seeds. Sprinkle of over salt and cracked pepper. Pour over salad dressing and enjoy!
