In Germany there is the proverbial phrase “sour gherkin season”. Originally, it denoted a season when only very few fresh foodstuffs were available, namely the winter season. With this salad, we show you how to sweeten the “sour gherkin season” with a tasty winter salad.
Cut chicory 2 cm higher than core end in order to remove leaves easily. Cut radicchio into fine strips. Wash and spin corn salad. Peel and segment the oranges. Crack nuts and divide into some pieces each. Decorate salad leaves and oranges on a plate and garnish with walnuts. For the dressing, put all ingredients in a bowl and blend into a fine emulsion. Season to taste. Drizzle dressing over salad.
