I decided to make a new dish for the christmas dinner. I know that the Danes are really set the their ways, especially when it comes to their christmas dinner. But I love trying new things, so I hope my husband's family will love this citrus salad inspired from "Lakrids i Maden".
When I read that the salad called for a liquorice vinaigrette, my first thought was "how would the salty liquorice syrup taste with the dark espresso balsamic from The Olive bar?" I can only say "faaaantastic" - and on a slice of orange it tastes even better.
Here is my take on the citrus salad.
- 1 tablespoon salty liquorice syrup
- 2 tablespoons dark espresso balsamic
- 3 oranges
- 2 pink grapefruits
- 2 pink lemons
- Tunisian blood orange olive oil
- 1 handful Italian parsley, chopped
- 2 tablespoons shallots, finely chopped
Whisk the the liquorice syrup with the balsamic, set aside.
Peel oranges, lemons and grapefruits and slice them thinly. Arrange the slices in a platter and sprinkle with olive oil and salt.
Drizzle the dressing un top, and sprinkle with onion and parsley.
