Sophisticated Orange Salad Recipe
- a lovely salad bowl

- 3 large/ 5 medium tomatoes
- 120 gm baby spinach – about 8 cups of loose baby spinach leaves
- 3/4 cup oil
- 1/2 cup lemon juice ( 2 lemons)
- Salt and pepper
Make the orange salad:
To save time make this in the salad bowl:
rinse and spin the baby spinach. Use a spinner so as to gently dry them
without bruising the delicate leaves. Leave to air dry till required.
Cut up the orange into bite sized pieces and toss the into the beautiful salad bowl.
Do the same with the tomatoes. It is best to chop the orange and tomatoes about the same size.
Pour over the dressing and let it soak for about an hour.
toss in the baby spinach but only at the very last moment as it is
about to be served. Remove any leaves with any evidence of bruising.
They're fine to eat but it just doesn't look appetizing. Save these
bruised leaves for cooking.
The salad dressing:
A dressing for this salad recipe needs to be light and fresh without complicated flavors.
a clean jam jar with a tight fitting lid, pour in the oil and lemon
juice. Season with salt and pepper to your taste and give it a good
shake. Don't be tempted to reduce the amount of oil. Without the good
oils, the dressing is too tart and watery and most unattractive.
