  • 2 large navel oranges
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 3/4 pound watercress (2 bunches), tough stems discarded
  • 3 plum tomatoes, each cut into 6 wedges
  • One 14-ounce can hearts of palm, drained and cut on the diagonal into 1/2-inch slices
  • 1/2 cup pitted Calamata olives


  1. Using a sharp knife, peel the oranges, taking care to remove all of the bitter white pith; working over a bowl, cut in between the membranes to release the sections. Squeeze the membranes to get 1/4 cup of the orange juice. Save the remaining orange juice for another use.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk the orange juice and lemon juice with the olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Add the orange sections, watercress, tomatoes, hearts of palm and olives and toss well. Serve immediately.
