Insalata di Rucola, Foglie di Senapa Rossa & Arancia
Arugula, Red Mustard Leaf, Fig and Orange Salad
real recipe here- but some pretty pictures despite a lot of frustration
this weekend! And not an apple in sight! So why the name? Well- truth
be told, I would have been presenting you good people with more than a
salad this Saturday evening... if it hadn't been for the fact that I
have beedn doing battle with my newly acquired iPad today... hence the
name! Apple indeed!
If only I had been able to have got
it to work I may have had a little more time for the tastier things in
life... but as it was, I found myself rushing back into town at 7pm to
the Apple store, where everyone was happy and the world was a better
place... full of fully functioning computers...
I digress- as I neither got my new toy to work upon my return, nor is
this a blog about computers! Nope- back to this tasty salad which I
managed to whip up in just 10 minutes... Not quite a full meal- but a
nice little treat in any case and wonderfully refreshing as well!
blanched the shredded orange zest in boiling water for 2-3 minutes to
remove any bitterness and then squeezed the juice from the rest of the
orange. I seasoned the juice with salt and pepper and added a little olive oil. After rinsing the arugula and the mustard leaves off, I tossed them in the seasoned juice and arranged them on my plate.
came the fig, cut into thin slices and also a handful of the shredded
orange zest. A sprinkle of sunflower seeds and a dusting of my seasoned
salt, together with a light drizzle of honey, made this into a delicious
Springtime salad. I hope you all approve... so that at least one good
thing came of my day!
