Recipe: For 2 persons
* For the salad:
10-12 white asparagus, not too thick, peeled & cleaned
100 gr thinly sliced smoked duck slices
2 ripe figs, cut into 4 parts orso
a bag of mixed young salad leaves
* For the dressing:
the juice of 1/2 of the oranges above, measure out 1 tablespoon orange juice for the dressing
2 teaspoons to 1 tablespoon of tangy cranberry sauce/ I use home-made
1 tablespoon of a fruity extra virgin olive oil
black pepper, finely grinned
Maldon sea salt
- Cut your orange with peel on into 2. Take a bowl & juice half the part of the orange in here. Set aside. The other part, peel it & remove white skins & discard the pits. Cut into segments a remove the inner skin. Place into a bowl. The other orange, peel it; cut into segments too & discard the white bits & pits.
- Make the dressing. Take a small jam pot & add olive oil, orange juice from the 1/2 orange & 2 teaspoons cranberry sauce. Season with Maldon sea salt & some grins of black pepper. Place fitted jam lid on & shake your jam pot up & down & again. Taste the dressing! You must taste the tangy cranberry & the sweetness of the orange.
- At the same time, boil your white asparagus into hot water until cooked through & tender. Drain well. Keep warm.
- Take 2 clean white serving plates & plate up! Place a small handful of the young salad leaves all over the base of each plate. Place onto each plate, 4 fig wedges. Place about 5 white cooked asparagus on top of each plate. Arrange your orange segments onto each plate as well, about 6 per plate. Finally, arrange your smoked duck slices on top of your salad, onto each plate. One last time, shake your dressing up & down into the fitted jam pot. Drizzle the dressing in a circle all over the top of the salad, onto the 2 plates. Pop your champagne & pour it into 2 cool champagne glasses & enjoy with your loved one!
