    This is delicious! I skipped the ice cube step and just went to adding everything into the bowl. The recipe doesn't state when to add the orange zest so I mixed it in with the dressing. Yummy :)

    A very easy and delicious salad. I used baby spinach leaves and young watercress (both ready washed) and blood oranges. This will be a family favourite.

    Great, light and flavorful salad. I didn't use Olive Oil (ran out) so added a bit of water and it still was great!
