This Nigel Slater recipe for a warm salad of oranges, almonds and honey, is one of all time favourites.

Start off by making the dressing:

honey 5 tbsp
skinned almonds 70g
orange 1, large
lemon 1

To serve:
oranges 4, small
mascarpone 4 generous tbsp

Put 3 tbsp of honey into a nonstick frying pan. Add the skinned almonds and leave them to simmer over a moderate heat for 3 or 4 minutes. Tip into a small, oiled plate or baking tray and set aside.

Squeeze the orange and the lemon into the frying pan. Pour in the final 2 tbsp of honey and warm the mixture over a moderate heat. Bring to the boil and simmer for 3 or 4 minutes.

Remove the peel from the small oranges then slice the fruit thinly. Divide the slices between 4 plates and add a spoonful of mascarpone to each one. Scatter the almonds and honey over the top and then spoon over the warm orange dressing.
