ROCKET SALAD with Orange Vanilla Vinaigrette, Orange Supremes, Vella Jack Crisp, Marcona Almonds, and Sun-Dried Cranberries
This salad is full of texture and flavor, with bitter greens complemented by a sweet orange-based dressing, crunchy roasted almonds, sweet-sour dried cranberries, and a savory cheese crisp.
FOR THE VINAIGRETTE
1/2 cup fresh orange juice (reserve zest from oranges used below)
1 vanilla bean, scraped
1 shallot, peeled and chopped
2 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped
1/4 cup champagne vinegar
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup olive oil
1 cup canola oil
FOR THE CRISP
1/2 pound Vella Jack cheese, finely grated by hand (reserve about 4 tablespoons for the garnish)
FOR THE ZEST
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
3 oranges, skin zested, fruit supremed for the garnish
FOR THE SALAD AND GARNISH
1/2 pound (about 1 cup) Marcona almonds
1 pound fresh rocket greens (arugula), washed and dried
3 orange supremes
2 ounces (about 4 tablespoons) sun-dried cranberries
To prepare the vinaigrette: place all the ingredients in a blender except the olive and canola oils.While processing on high, slowly pour the oils into the mixture until fully emulsified.
To prepare the crisp: preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Line an ovenproof pan with parchment paper. Portion the cheese into 1 x 3-inch rectangles, as thin as possible. Bake for 12 minutes, turning once. Remove from pan and let cool.
To prepare the zest: combine the sugar and water in a saucepan and bring to a simmer. Add the zest to the liquid, simmer for 4 minutes, then remove from heat and let rest in the liquid for 1 hour. Strain and place on a sheet pan in a single layer to dry and crisp.
To serve the salad: preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Roast the almonds, turning every 2 minutes for 12 minutes total; let cool and become crisp. Lightly dress the greens with the vinaigrette, divide into individual portions, and place each portion in the center of a plate. Arrange the supremed tangerines around the greens. Sprinkle the salad with almonds, cranberries, and grated cheese. Top each salad with a crisp.
