Preparation of the salad of duck ham, oranges and walnuts

  1. We peel an orange and take the segments live. They must be clean and without a trace of skin, so that they do not bother or bitter. We collect the juice that is left in the orange. We reserve for the orange vinaigrette.
  2. We continue with the vinaigrette. Mix all the ingredients and add the orange juice (a little bit). We are going to use a glass jar with a lid to make the vinaigrette as I have explained in other recipes.
  3. We introduce all the ingredients and close the pot. Shake until emulsified, reserve.
  4. We prepare the different ingredients that we are going to need for the salad. We open the duck ham package and air the slices for a few minutes. Remember that we must remove the duck ham a little before consumption so that it is at its optimum point.
  5. We wash the leaves of the chosen mezclum (you can also prepare this salad with lettuce). Drain them and dry well. We put everything in a bowl to be able to dress them before assembling the plate.
  6. We put the chopped walnuts (half) in the bowl and the pieces of orange.
  7. Dress the salad with the orange vinaigrette in the bowl. We assemble the salad on a plate with a plating ring. We place the rest of the walnuts and the duck ham sheets on top.
  8. Dress with a little more vinaigrette just when we are going to bring the salad to the table. Bon Appetite!
