Watercress Salad with Blood Oranges
- Active Time 10m
- Total Time 10m
Watercress grows in stream beds throughout Ireland. Toss it with this pleasantly sharp, nut-flavored dressing. The dressing is truly phenomenal if you use the very best oils and vinegar that you can afford. Oranges, including blood oranges, are very popular in Ireland. Since blood oranges have a limited growing season, substitute regular orange juice if necessary.
- 3 tablespoons blood orange juice
- 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 2 tablespoons walnut oil
- 2 tablespoons hazelnut oil
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
3 cups watercress, stemmed
- 3 blood oranges, segmented
- 2 tablespoons chopped garlic chives or regular chives
Using hand blender, blend first 5 ingredients in medium bowl until well blended. Season dressing to taste with salt and pepper.
Toss watercress with dressing to coat. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Divide watercress among 6 salad plates. Arrange blood orange segments on salad. Garnish with garlic chives and serve.
