What you'll need

150g broccoli, broken into florets

2 large oranges

1 red onion, finely sliced

2 tsp red or white wine vinegar

2 tsp wholegrain or Dijon mustard

3 tbsp olive oil

175g baby spinach

110g seedless red grapes

110g Pilgrims Choice Vintage Extra Mature Cheddar, cut into small cubes

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Serves 6

Cook the broccoli in boiling water for four to five minutes, until just tender. Drain and rinse with cold water. Meanwhile, peel the oranges with a sharp, serrated knife to remove all the pith. Do this over a large salad bowl to catch the drips.

Cut the oranges into segments, removing all the membrane, then add to the salad bowl. Add the red onion, vinegar, mustard and olive oil. Stir gently and leave 10 minutes to marinate.

Add the broccoli, spinach, grapes and cheese to the salad bowl. Toss gently to coat in the dressing, then serve.
