DIRECTIONS

  • Slice away the tops and bottoms of oranges. Cutting from top to bottom, following the curve of the orange, slice away the peel and white pith.
  • Slice between the membranes of the orange segments. Remove the segments. Squeeze the juice from the membrane, and reserve.
  • Wash watercress thoroughly in cold water. Thinly slice the onion half and soak it in cold water; a brief soaking removes harsh, bitter flavors.
  • Combine the olive oil, vinegar, and orange juice in a jar with a tight-fitting lid; season with salt and pepper. Shake vigorously.
  • Drain the watercress and onion. Combine them with the orange segments, and vinaigrette; toss well to evenly coat.
  • Divide among salad plates and serve.
