Summer is here - Mozzarella & Citrus Salad

Summer is here - Mozzarella & Citrus Salad

 Adapted from Diana Henry's recipe in Simple

Serves 2 as a main or 4 as a starter

• 250g La Perla Buffalo Mozzarella

• Bulb of Fennel

• 1 Orange

• 1 Red Grapefruit

• 1 White Grapefruit

• Olives - Black give a good contrast

For the dressing

• 3 Tbsp Orange Juice

• 1 Tbsp Lemon Juice

• 1 Tbsp Runny Honey (The Old Trafford Allotment Hney we do works brilliantly)

• 3 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Quarter the Fennel, remove any hard core, and then very finely slice - using a mandolin if you have one. Save any fronds for dressing.

Use a knife to remove all the peel & pith from the Citrus fruits, then thinly slice, removing any pips.

Arrange Fennel, Citrus and Olives on a plate. Drain the Mozzarella, tear, and place on the Salad.

Place all the dressing ingredients in a jug and whisk with a fork until combined. Season to taste. Drizzle over the salad, finishing with any Fennel fronds and a twist of black pepper.
