Ingredients

24 leaves fresh mint, chopped, plus some whole leaves to garnish 8 g
4 oranges 700 g
4 tbsp almonds 30 g
1 tsp ground cinnamon 3 g

Method

  1. Finely chop the mint leaves.
  2. Juice one third of the oranges, then collect the juice into a saucepan. Heat 2-3 min over medium heat, then remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in the chopped mint leaves. Let the leaves infuse 10 min, then filter the juice.
  3. Peel the remaining oranges with a sharp knife, removing all the white pith, then cut the oranges into slices (about 7-8 mm thick). Arrange the orange slices on a platter. Pour the mint-flavoured orange juice over the slices, then sprinkle with the almonds. Sprinkle the salad with the cinnamon, then chill in the refrigerator for at least 1 h.
  4. Before serving, garnish the plate with a few whole mint leaves.
