Anise and orange

As it's the day of the Papal visit, a heavenly flavour combination seems fitting.





Since Supper Eleven, I've been dreaming about this combination. I may not be recreating the starter salad in it's full glory for lunch, but I'll definitely be cheering up my salad leaves with this delicious dressing. It smells fragrant and fresh and as The Flavour Thesaurus states: "The anise seems to enhance the citrus juiciness of the orange."






You will simply need:


A good glug of orange juice


1/2 vanilla pod


1 star anise (whole)


2 cardamon pods


Heat in a pan and reduce until thick and syrupy. Cool and drizzle liberally to liven up your salad.
