This salad is packed with antioxidants from the pomegranate and blood oranges – and I guarantee it will make a good impression when entertaining. It makes me think of summer in Italy!

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
2 blood oranges
2 teaspoons sea salt
2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
500g squid tubes, quartered lengthwise and finely scored
1 fennel bulb, finely sliced
1 pomegranate, seeded
250g mixed salad leaves

Dressing

Quantity Ingredient
2 tablespoons campari
2 tablespoons juice reserved from segmenting the blood oranges
2 teaspoons orange-blossom water, (instead you could use 1 teaspoon caster sugar)
3 tablespoons olive oil

Method

  1. Use a small, sharp knife to cut the peel from the oranges, making sure to remove all the white pith. Hold the oranges over a bowl to catch any juice and cut on either side of each segment to remove wedges of flesh, leaving the membranes behind. Drop the wedges into another bowl. Squeeze the juice from the membranes and measure out 2 tablespoons for the dressing.
  2. To make the dressing, bring the Campari to the boil in a small saucepan. Reduce the heat and whisk in the juice, orange-blossom water and oil. Remove from the heat and leave to cool.
  3. Preheat a barbecue grill to medium. Combine the salt and pepper on a plate. Toss the squid in the salt and pepper, then grill the pieces for 1–2 minutes on each side.
  4. Combine the squid, blood-orange segments, fennel, pomegranate seeds and salad leaves in a bowl. Pour on the dressing and toss well.
