    Date, orange and goats’ cheese salad with mint

    • Preparation time: 20 minutes
    • Cooking time: 0 minutes
    • Total time: 20 minutes

    Serves: 4 as a starter


    4 small oranges
    3 tbsp lemon juice
    1½ tbsp honey
    3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
    1 red chilli, finely sliced
    handful mint leaves
    4 medjool dates, stoned and sliced into slivers
    125g soft goats’ cheese


    1. To prepare the oranges, use a serrated knife to slice a horizontal disc from both ends, exposing the orange flesh. Now work around the orange, slicing all the skin and pith away in vertical strips around the fruit. Horizontally slice each orange into 0.5cm-thick rounds, reserving any extra juice.

    2. Make a dressing by combining the lemon juice (and any reserved orange juice) with the honey and olive oil; season. Gently toss together the orange slices, chilli, mint leaves and dates, then divide between serving plates. Dot with the goats’ cheese and drizzle with the dressing before serving.
