This is a really quick salad to throw together and enjoy as a starter or after a main course. Almost any melon will work for this recipe, depending on the season. Do pick one that is ripe and has plenty of flavour. You can usually tell this by smelling the top of it. If there is no scent, choose another one or wait until it ripens. You need a really good, peppery olive oil for this – the flavour with the orange and melon is worth the expense.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
1 melon, peeled, seeded and cut into 2 cm thick wedges
2 oranges
2 tablespoons small and torn large mint leaves
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
handful walnuts, roughly crushed in a pestle and mortar
1 teaspoon finely grated orange zest
1/2 lemon, finely grated zest
salt, to taste
2 teaspoons pink peppercorns, roughly crushed

Method

  1. Assemble the melon pieces on a large platter or individual plates. On a board and using a sharp knife, peel and cut away the pith from both oranges. Cut out the segments from between the membrane and let them fall on to the melon. Scatter over the remaining ingredients.
