  • cutter / blender


  • 4 blood orange
  • 1 orange
  • 1 Burrata cheese
  • 50 gr argula salad
  • 1 head of lettuce
  • 1 spring onion
  • ¼ red onion
  • 20 gr walnuts
  • 1 handful basil leaves
  • salt and pepper

The nut dressing:


Make the walnut dressing:

  • For this dressing I used walnuts: (
    Place the nuts, olive oil, soy sauce, garlic and a pinch of pepper in the blender / cutter. Mix to a homogeneous sauce. Add additional oil if needed.

The salad

  • Cut a slice of the oranges at the bottom and top. Set it on a board and then cut off the skin by cutting with your knife from top to bottom just below the skin. That way, only the pulp remains. Once the skin has been removed, cut it into ½ cm slices.
  • Wash the lettuce, finely chop the lettuce hearts and place both the arugula and the shredded lettuce on a platter. Drain the Burrata cheese and add it to the lettuce. Divide the orange slices. Cut the red onion and spring onion into fine rings. Place on top of the orange. Sprinkle the walnuts and basil leaves on top.
  • Put the salad on the table. Cut open the Burrata cheese so that the liquid cheese runs out. Sprinkle with the nut sauce and add some pepper from the mill on top.


Orange salad based on sweet blood orange, also known as the wine orange. This species is said to have arisen by mutation around 1850. The blood orange has its red color due to the production of anthocyanins. That is the same substance that turns red cabbage red. The Mediterranean climate is ideal for this orange variety. Every spring from February I go in search of the blood orange. I think it tastes sweeter and the juice turns into such a beautiful red color that you can also make delicious and beautiful mocktails or fruit juices with it. An orange salad in combination with Burrata is one of my favorite salads, nice, fresh and healthy. Tasty!
