Servings: 4

Ingredients

  • 3 blood oranges
  • 1 bulb fennel thinly sliced leaves reserved for garnish
  • 3 radishes thinly sliced
  • ½ a head radicchio thinly sliced
  • ½ red onion thinly sliced
  • ½ cup walnuts roughly chopped

Blood orange vinaigrette

  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon white balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup

Instructions

  • To start, peel the oranges making sure to remove all of the pith then segment them carefully over a bowl to catch the juice. Once all of the segments are removed squeeze the pulp over the bowl to collect as much juice as possible.
  • In a large bowl, combine two tablespoons of the reserved juice with the ingredients for the vinaigrette and mix thoroughly. Toss the radicchio and fennel in the vinaigrette and let sit for 30 minutes. Soaking these ingredients in the dressing helps to offset the strong flavours.
  • To construct, start by placing radicchio and fennel onto the serving dish then scatter over onion, radishes, walnuts and orange segments. Serve immediately.
