  • 2 large oranges
  • 1½ tbsp wholegrain mustard
  • 1½ tsp honey
  • 1 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 3 tbsp rapeseed or olive oil, plus extra for frying
  • 2 large carrots, peeled
  • 225g block halloumi, sliced
  • 100 bag watercressor baby spinach


  1. Cut the peel and pith away from the oranges. Use a small serrated knife to segment the orange, catching any juices in a bowl, then squeeze any excess juice from the off-cut pith into the bowl as well. Add the mustard, honey, vinegar, oil and some seasoning to the bowl and mix well.

  2. Using a vegetable peeler, peel carrot ribbons into the dressing bowl and toss gently. Heat a drizzle of oil in a frying pan and cook the halloumi for a few mins until golden on both sides. Toss the watercress through the dressed carrots. Arrange the watercress mixture on plates and top with the halloumi and oranges.
