Orange, Mint and Jalapeño Salad

Orange, Mint and Jalapeño Salad (2)

I’m on an orange roll, as you might have noticed last week. And so, today, I wanted to share another orange recipe with you, since I happened to create it a little by chance, with what I had in the fridge, and it came out beautifully. With only 4 main ingredients, how can you go wrong? Orange slices topped with chopped mint, jalapeño (yes, it tastes great mixed in!), toasted pine nuts, a sprinkle of fleur de sel, and a drizzle of olive oil. That’s it. Crazy simple, ridiculously pretty, and I just know you will love it!

Instructions
  1. Preheat a small sauté pan on medium heat, and toast the pine nuts until golden brown and fragrant, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board to cool.

  3. Cut each orange into thin slices. Discard any orange seeds.
  4. Arrange the slices on a serving platter. Top with mint, jalapeño and pine nuts. Sprinkle on a little fleur de sel, and drizzle on some olive oil, to taste.
