Ingredients
  • 100gm Peperilli Salamior another of your choice
  • 1whole fennel bulbsmall thinly sliced ( I used a mandolin cutter)
  • 2whole Blood Oranges
  • 150gm quinoacooked
  • 100gm Danish fetacubed
  • 1cup herbspicked herbs such as parsley, basil, rocket, watercress
  • 1tablespoon chiveschopped (or onion if you prefer)
  • 25gm pepita seeds for crunch
  • 20gm dijon mustard1 heaped tablespoon
  • 2tablespoons olive oil
  • 80ml orange juice(1/4 cup juice) from the blood oranges above
  • 20ml balsamicsweet
Instructions
  1. Shred the fennel and herbs and put them into a bowl with the quinoa, feta, seeds and chives. Set aside.
  2. Peel the two blood oranges taking off all of the pith. Hold them over a bowl while segmenting. Do this by holding the orange in one hand and cutting between the membranes of the orange with a pairing knife and removing a segment, leaving it without skin or conective tissue. Squeeze the skeletons over a bowl catching any liquid.
  3. Add the orange to the salad.
  4. Lay the Peperilli chilli salami on a parchment lined tray and bake for 10 minutes or until crispy and lightly browned. Drain on paper. There will not be much fat, in fact it is almost all olive oil. This can also be done on a BBQ or in a fry pan. Cool and add to the salad
Dressing
  1. You will need about 1/4 cup of juice. If you don’t have enough add a bit of orange or apple juice. Put the juice into a bowl with the mustard, salt, pepper and olive oil and mix well. Taste . If you think it needs a little acid or a zesty spike add a teaspoon at a time of balsamic or lemon juice until you are happy with it.
  2. When ready to serve add the dressing to the salad and toss well or serve on the side.
Recipe Notes

You can also use cooked Farro, Frekkah or even couscous or brown rice in this salad too
