Blacksticks Blue, Orange and Spinach Salad

Blacksticks Blue, Orange and Spinach Salad


Now summer threatens we thought a salad recipe would be good and this one is a beauty. And it's packed with goodness:

1. In a large salad bowl, mix together the olive oil and vinegar. Season with salt and black pepper. Add the red onion and stir well.

2. Using a serrated knife, peel the oranges, removing all the pith. Do this over the salad bowl so that you catch all the drops of orange juice. Segment the oranges with the knife to remove all the membrane, adding them to the bowl with the juice.

3. Put the spinach and watercress into the salad bowl. Toss together to coat in the dressing. Add chunks of the Blacksticks Blue cheese.

4. Toast the almonds, either under the grill or in a heavy-based frying pan, until they begin to brown lightly. Tip onto the salad whilst hot, then serve immediately.
