- Prepare the fiddleheads: wash them well and soak them at least 10 min.
- Steam them 10 min or blanch them 15 min in a pot of boiling salted water. Drain them and shake a few times to remove excess water. Let them cool down at least 10 minutes.
- Peel the oranges with a small paring knife, removing all the pith. Cut the oranges into pieces, reserving any juice that runs out. Put the oranges with their juice and fiddleheads in a salad bowl.
- In a small bowl, add the oil, lemon juice, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper. Beat well, using a fork, until the vinaigrette is emulsified.Pour the vinaigrette over the salad, mix lightly and serve.
