Orange-Clementine-Carrot Salad With Figs & Almonds


This is one of our favourite recipes. We came up with this whilst cooking for the participants of the venture weekend organised by Climate KIC. Inspired by the Christmas season, we added almonds and figs to this Mediterranean salad. The recipe works just as well in the summer though – it’s simple, fresh and light. Enjoy!

Ratio for the salad (alternate according to your resources):

20 clementines: 6 oranges: 10 carrots: 15 almonds: 10 figs

  1. Chop up the clementines and oranges into small pieces
  2. Grate the carrots
  3. Mix it all up in a bowl
  4. Add the almonds and figs (chop into small pieces if necessary)

Ratio for the vinaigrette:

6 table spoons balsamic vinegar: 4 table spoons olive oil: 1 tea-spoon mustard: X salt & pepper

  1. Mix the vinegar and mustard first (the mustard dilutes better this way)
  2. Then add the rest of the ingredients and pour over the salad
