Blueberry, Orange, and Lavender Salad Recipe

Blueberry, Orange and Lavender Salad  Ingredients:

  • 6 oranges
  • 12 0z. blueberries
  • 8 sprigs fresh lavender

MERIGUE:

  • 2 eggs whites
  • 1/2 cup superfine sugar
  • 1 tsp. fresh lavender flowers

Cooking Instructions:

  • Preheat the oven to 275 F. Line a baking sheet with 6 layers of newspaper and cover with buttered waxed paper. Whisk the egg whites in a large mixing bowl until they hold their weight on the whisk. Add the sugar a little at a time, whisking thoroughly before each addition. Fold in the lavender flowers.
  • Spoon the meringue into a piping bag fitted with a ¼ in plain nozzle. Pipe as many small buttons of meringue near the bottom of the oven for 1 ½-2 hours.
  • To segment the oranges, remove the peel from the top, bottom, and sides with a serrated knife. Loosen the segments by cutting with a paring knife between the flesh and the membranes, holding the fruit over a bowl.
  • Arrange the segments on 4 plates.
  • Combine the blueberries with the lavender meringues and pile in the center of each plate. Decorate with sprigs of lavender and serve.

COOK’S TIP : Lavender is used in both sweet and savory dishes. Always use fresh or recently dried flowers, and avoid artificially scented bunches that are sold for domestic purposes.
