Orange salad


Serves 4

  • 2 oranges
  • 1 small romaine lettuce
  • 1/2 sweet read onion, finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon sherry vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sweet wine or port


Peel the oranges so that no pith is left; cut them into slices crosswise; but the lettuce into wide strips (I think this means 90 degrees to the leaf); arrange on a platter and sprinkle on the onion.

Just before serving beat the oil, vinegar, wine or port and a little salt with a fork and pour over the salad tossing gently.

Not in the original recipe, but adding some black olives would seem to do no harm.

  1. Was more than the sum of its parts – looked great with red onion – tasted great as well – didn’t add sweet wine to the dressing but still good.
