|2 bunches||watercress, rinsed and spin-dry||240 g|
|3||oranges, cut into rounds||550 g|
|1/4 cup||extra virgin olive oil||65 mL|

|ground pepper to taste [optional]|
|3/4 cup||walnuts [optional]||80 g|
- Rinse and spin-dry the watercress, then arrange the leaves on the serving plates.
- Peel the oranges with a sharp knife, removing all the white pith from the flesh and saving the juice, if any. Cut the oranges into 7 mm-thick rounds and arrange them on the individual plates, on top of the watercress.
- In a small bowl, mix the extra virgin olive oil, reserved orange juice, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Whisk well using a fork until the vinaigrette is emulsified. Pour it over the plates. Garnish each plate with walnuts (optional) and chopped figs, then serve.
