Ingredients

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
2 tbsp lemon juice, freshly squeezed 3/4 lemon
5 dried figs, chopped 6 tbsp
salt [optional]
ground pepper to taste [optional]
3/4 cup walnuts [optional] 80 g

Method

  1. Rinse and spin-dry the watercress, then arrange the leaves on the serving plates.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
