CARROT, AVOCADO, AND ORANGE SALAD
- Preheat the oven to 400°F.
- Pound the garlic with a healthy pinch of salt in a mortar until you have a wet, fairly smooth paste. (You can also do this on a cutting board, chopping and mashing and chopping and mashing until you're satisfied.) Put the paste in a large mixing bowl. Add the cumin, coriander, chilies, and 1/4 cup of the olive oil and stir well, then add the carrots and toss well so they're coated with the oil and spices. Sprinkle on 3 healthy pinches of salt, crushing the grains with your fingers as you add them, and toss again.
- Put the carrots in a large shallow baking dish in one layer. Scrape out the extra garlic, spices, and oil from the bowl and spread evenly on top of the carrots. Pour 1/4 cup water into an empty spot in the casserole (you don't want to wash off the tasty oily stuff) and tilt the dish so the water spreads across the bottom.
- Cover the dish tightly with foil and put it in the oven. Cook the carrots for 25 minutes. Take off the foil and keep cooking until the carrots are lightly browned, and about as tender and creamy as avocado flesh, but not so soft that they threaten to fall apart, about 35 minutes more.
- While the carrots are roasting, segment the orange as you would a lemon. Squeeze the membranes into a small bowl to release the juice. Set it aside.
- When the carrots are done, take the dish out of the oven and let it sit until the carrots have cooled a bit but are still warm.
- Meanwhile, take the avocados from the fridge. Halve them lengthwise, remove the pits, and peel the halves. Cut the flesh lengthwise into slices about the same size as the carrots-the slices should be sturdy enough that they don't break up when you toss them.
- Put the avocado slices in a large mixing bowl and add the reserved orange juice, the lemon juice, the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil, and a healthy pinch or two of salt. Toss gently and well with your hands. Push the avocado to one side of the bowl. Add the carrots a handful at a time, scraping and tossing them in the beautiful green liquid in the bowl before adding the next handful. Make sure to scrape out and add all the garlicky spices left in the baking dish. Toss it all together gently, being careful not to break the avocado slices.
- Stack the carrots, avocado, and orange segments on a platter or in a serving bowl so they're facing this way and that. Top with the cilantro and serve right away.
AVOCADO AND ORANGE SALAD WITH HONEY AND GINGER DRESSING
I just love how the silky texture of the diced avocado plays off the orange segments in this refreshing salad. Shop for your avocados a couple of days in advance of making this salad; it seems you can never find a ripe avocado at the store on the same day you need one!

- Segment and juice 3 of the oranges in the following way: Cut both ends off 1 of the oranges and place it, cut side up, on a cutting board. Using a sharp, flexible knife, cut the skin and white membrane from the orange. Use a sawing motion and cut from top to bottom following the contours of the orange. Free the orange segments by cutting along the seams that separate them from each other. Do this over a bowl to collect any juices. Reserve the segments separately and squeeze what's left of the orange over the bowl to collect the juice. Do the same with the remaining 2 oranges. Strain the juice into a measuring cup: You should have about 3/4 cup; if not, juice the remaining orange and add as much as needed.
- Combine the ginger, mayonnaise, mustard, and honey with 1/2 cup of the orange juice in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
- In a small bowl, combine half of the chopped shallots with 3 tablespoons of the remaining orange juice. Whisk in the olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
- Cut the avocados lengthwise up to the large pit in the middle. Gently twist apart the 2 halves and remove the pit. Wedge a teaspoon between the skin and the flesh and remove the flesh in 1 piece. Cut the avocados into 1-inch pieces and put them into the bowl with the honey-and-ginger dressing. Add the remaining shallots, the chopped mint and the chopped cilantro, and mix together lightly so as not to break up the avocado.
- When ready to serve, set aside 8 orange segments. Toss the rest with the whole lettuce leaves and just enough of the orange-and-olive oil vinaigrette to coat. Divide the lettuce and oranges among 4 plates. Spoon some avocado onto each plate (there will be some dressing left in the bowl). Top with the reserved orange segments and drizzle any remaining honey-and-ginger dressing over the salad. Garnish with whole mint and cilantro leaves, and, if you like, some pickled ginger.
ROAST CARROT AND AVOCADO SALAD WITH ORANGE AND LEMON DRESSING
If you're going to use cooked carrots in a salad you've got to make it with some attitude! This fantastic Moroccan-style salad combines roast carrots with avocados - and because they have the same texture in your mouth, I thought I'd add the chargrilled flavor and crunch of toasted ciabatta to round things off. With spices, seeds, sour cream and a delicious citrus dressing, you've got a winner.

- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
- Parboil the carrots in boiling, salted water for 10 minutes, until they are very nearly cooked, then drain and put them into a roasting pan. You should flavor them while they're steaming hot, so while the carrots are cooking get a pestle and mortar and smash up the cumin seeds, chilles, salt and pepper. Add the garlic and thyme leaves and smash up again until you have a kind of paste. The idea here is to build up the flavors. Add enough extra-virgin olive oil to generously cover the paste, and a good swig of vinegar. This will be like a marinade, a rub and a dressing all in one! Stir together, then pour over the carrots in the pan, coating them well. Add the orange and lemon halves, cut side down.
- These will roast along with the carrots, and their juice can be used as the basis of the dressing. Place in the preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until golden.
- While the carrots are roasting, halve and peel the avocados, discarding the pits, then cut them into wedges lengthwise and place in a big bowl. Remove the carrots from the oven and add them to the avocados. Carefully, using some tongs, squeeze the roasted orange and lemon juice into a bowl and add the same amount of extra-virgin olive oil and a little swig of red wine vinegar. Season, and pour this dressing over the carrots and avocados. Mix together, have a taste and correct the seasoning. Call your gang round the table while you toast or broil your ciabatta slices.
- Tear the toasted bread into little pieces and add to the dressed carrot and avocado. Mix together, toss in the salad leaves and cress and transfer to a big platter or divide between individual plates. Spoon over a nice dollop of sour cream, sprinkle over your toasted seeds and drizzle over some extra-virgin olive oil.

ORANGE AND AVOCADO SALAD
- Cut off ends of oranges; using a paring knife, remove peel, pith, and outer membranes, following the curve of the fruit. Working over a bowl to catch the juices, cut between sections to remove whole segments; add segments to a large bowl. Squeeze juice from membranes into a bowl; measure out 3 tablespoons juice; reserve remaining juice for another use.
- In a small bowl, whisk together reserved orange juice, vinegar, and olive oil; season with salt and pepper.
- In a large bowl, combine oranges, lettuce, avocado, and radishes. Drizzle with dressing as desired, and toss gently to combine. Serve immediately.

ROASTED CARROT AND AVOCADO SALAD
In 2012, carrots, those little spark plugs in a salad or a stew, were having a moment. Chefs across the country were showcasing handsome, meaty specimens in a rainbow of colors, dressed and garnished without a sliver of meat or fish. Well, maybe a touch of bacon. This salad begins with carrots roasted in a spicy paste. It's finished with smooth avocado, sprouts, sour cream and pumpkin seeds.

- Heat oven to 400 degrees. In a small food processor or a mortar, pulse or pound the garlic with the cumin, thyme, chile flakes, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt and 3/4 teaspoon pepper to make a paste. Add vinegar and 2 tablespoons of the oil, and mix well.
- Arrange carrots in a roasting pan and spread spice paste on top. Place orange and lemon halves, cut side down, on carrots. Roast until carrots are tender and starting to brown, about 45 minutes.
- Using tongs, arrange carrots on a serving platter. With a dishtowel to protect your hands, squeeze juice from the roasted orange and lemon halves into a measuring cup. You should have about 1/2 cup juice. Beat in remaining 2 tablespoons oil. Season with salt and pepper. Drizzle some of this sauce over the carrots.
- Arrange avocado over carrots, then scatter sprouts on top. Drizzle with reserved sauce, top with dollops of sour cream and a sprinkling of the seeds. Serve.

AVOCADO AND ORANGE SALAD
This is one of my favourite salads. I mainly like to make it up in Asian soup spoons so you have little mouthful serves as hors d'ouvres. Oranges and dressing can be prepared in advance. Walnuts can be used if preferred.

- Segment the oranges by slicing off the tops and bottoms. Work around the orange using a sharp knife to cut downwards, to remove the peel and pith. Once peeled, hold in one hand and carefully cut between membranes to remove the segments. (If possible collect the juices for the dressing.).
- Cut avocados in halves and remove stones. Remove skin and then slice avocado. Use lemon juice to coat avocado to prevent browning.
- Arrange the orange and avocado on small plates, as desired, decorating with the pecans. Drizzle with the dressing.
- Dressing: combine all dressing ingredients in a screw top jar. Shake to combine. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

ROASTED CARROT & AVOCADO SALAD WITH CITRUS DRESSING
This recipe is slightly adapted from Jamie Oliver's "Jamie at Home" cookbook and television series. It's a bit involved, but well worth it for a delicious and different main meal salad with a fabulous mixture of interesting tastes and textures. This would be perfect to serve to visiting vegetarians - as not even the meat eaters will feel deprived. Jamie uses a mix of differently coloured carrots, but I could only get orange ones and that was fine. I did try adding in some parsnips, but I wasn't happy with that addition, and will just stick to carrots in future. For a main meal, I'd recommend 3 medium sized carrots each. Don't worry too much about the quantities - use whatever quantities you prefer - adjusting to your own taste.

- Don't peel the carrots.
- First, make the herb and spice paste for the carrots.
- In a mortar, combine the cumin seeds, chilli, salt and pepper and smash up with a pestle. Add the garlic and thyme leaves and pound until you have a paste-like consistency. Now add just enough extra virgin olive oil to cover the paste, together with 2 tablespoons of red wine vinegar. Mix together.
- Preheat oven to 180C (350F).
- Cook carrots in boiling, salted water for about 10 minutes or until almost cooked - run a sharp knife into one and it should push through without too much resistance.
- Drain carrots, pat dry with kitchen paper, and put into a roasting tin.
- Pour the spice paste mixture over the carrots and rub in well with your hands.
- Place the roasting tin in the oven and bake carrots for 30 minutes, then add the orange and lemon halves to the tin.
- Bake for another 15-30 minutes until carrots are well roasted and the skins are golden brown.
- (Jamie puts the fruit and the carrots in together, and roasts the lot for 30 minutes. I found this wasn't long enough to get the carrots well roasted and when I left them in longer, the orange and lemon dried out a bit - so the above method is my compromise.).
- While the carrots are roasting, halve the avocados, remove the seeds, scoop out the flesh and cut into wedges.
- Place avocado wedges into a large mixing bowl or salad bowl.
- Heat a medium sized frying pan over a medium heat on the stove and add the seeds. Toast seeds in the frying pan, tossing frequently, until lightly browned. Remove to a small bowl until needed.
- In the same pan, add a good couple of swigs of olive oil and toast your bread slices on both sides. Remove to a plate until needed.
- Now, remove the roasting tin from the oven.
- Using a pair of tongs, squeeze the roasted orange and lemon halves into a bowl (don't worry if some pulp falls out too).
- Add an equal amount of extra virgin olive oil to the bowl along with a tablespoon of red wine vinegar, and season with some crushed sea salt and freshly ground black pepper and mix well.
- Add the roasted carrots to the avocados in the bowl and pour over the dressing.
- Now roughly tear up the toasted bread slices and add to the salad.
- Add the mixed greens and toss the lot together.
- Divide salad between four plates or bowls, spoon a dollop of sour cream on the top of each, sprinkle with the toasted seeds and finish with a little drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.
