  • Serves 4
  • 30 mins preparation

Ingredients

Orange, fennel and hazelnut salad
  • 1 ruby grapefruit (400g)
  • 2 medium oranges (480g)
  • 3 baby fennel bulbs (390g), sliced thinly, fronds reserved
  • 1 red witlof (230g), leaves separated
  • 2 tablespoon skinless hazelnuts, roasted, chopped finely
  • 2 tablespoon baby fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 2 tablespoon finely chopped fresh mint leaves
  • 1 fresh long red chilli, seeded, chopped finely
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon white balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon fennel seeds, crushed finely

Method

Orange, fennel and hazelnut salad
  • 1
    Use a small sharp knife to cut the top and bottom from grapefruit and oranges. Cut off the rind with the white pith, following the curve of the fruit. Hold grapefruit over a bowl to catch the juices, then cut down both sides of the white membrane to release each segment. Reserve juice; you need 1 tablespoon. Cut oranges into slices.
  • 2
    Arrange grapefruit, orange, sliced fennel and witlof on a serving plate. Scatter with hazelnuts, herbs and chilli.
  • 3
    Whisk oil, vinegar and fennel seeds into reserved juice; season to taste.
  • 4
    Serve salad drizzled with dressing and topped with reserved fennel fronds.

Notes

Use a mandoline or V-slicer to cut the fennel into wafer thin slices. Use a mixture of oranges and blood oranges when they are in season.
