Sweet Pepper & Orange Salad

The sweetness of red peppers is the perfect accompaniment for sliced orange segments, and both are delicious piled up on top of healthy and nutritious spinach leaves. This is a great salad to go with burgers or falafel and works really well with white or oily fish too.


  • Spinach Leaves
  • Red Pepper
  • Red Onion
  • Orange
  • Rape Seed Oil
  • Cider Vinegar

Wash and gently dry the Spinach Leaves

Finely slice the Red Onion

Slice the Orange into segments or slices (being careful to discard any pith or skin)

Finely slice the Red Pepper and fry the pieces in a hot pan with a little Olive Oil and a pinch of Salt… Cook them on a high heat for 5 or 10 minutes or until they are starting to char a little on the edges.  Rest them on kitchen roll to drain off any excess oil, and then put them in a bowl with any juice left from slicing the Oranges, and 2 tsp Cider Vinegar.  Stir and leave for 10 minutes or so

When ready to eat, lay the Spinach out on a large plate and lay the Onion and Orange slices on top.  Add the Red Pepper slices last, using all the Vinegar and juice from the bowl

A light drizzle of Rape Seed Oil and a crunch of Black Pepper and you’re ready to go….

Good recipes to match this salad include:

Burger & Bun, Semolina Dusted Cod, or Red Pepper & Chickpea Falafel
