“My daughter made me this salad once. She said that it was from the Meal-in-a-minute TV advert but this version doesn't use any Watties products. (Not that there is anything wrong with bottled sauces but I prefer to make my own dressing) This is a nice easy recipe that makes a good side dish to some steamed fish.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Peel and cut the kumara into bite sized cubes.
  2. Toss in 2 tablespoons of olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes at 200C/400°F.
  4. Mix the mustard, lemon juice, and zest for the dressing.
  5. Add the olive oil a tablespoon at a time, whisking between each spoonful.
  6. Add finely chopped dill.
  7. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  8. Prepare the oranges by peeling and then cutting just the segments off the orange so that there is none of the tough bits. Squeeze any remaining orange juice in the fibrous bits into the dressing.
  9. Put the spinach is a large bowl.
  10. Add the roasted kumara straight from the oven and toss through the spinach to wilt the spinach. This works best if the kumara is still really hot.
  11. Add the dressing and orange segments and toss through.
  12. Serve slightly warm on a large plate and decorate with nasturtium flowers.
