Orange Salad with Anise Myrtle & Muntries

This is a recipe from my cookbook, The Outback Chef.  I love oranges, here the sweet juiciness of oranges have been paired with that amazing bush herb, anise myrtle.

My Recipe

Prep Time: 15 mins approx
Bushfood ingredients: Anise myrtle, Muntries, Mountain pepper berries


  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon Anise Myrtle
  • A good grind of Tasmanian Pepperberries
  • 1 level teaspoon ground Cumin
  • 1/2 red onion cut into finely sliced discs
  • 2 oranges, cut off the peel and cut into discs
  • 2 tomatoes chopped into wedges
  • 1/2 cup pitted Kalamata olives
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh Coriander
  • 1/4 cup fresh muntries


  1. Mix the first 5 ingredients together into a bowl
  2. Add the rest and mix together
  3. or if you feel a bit "arty" arrange the red onion, oranges, tomatoes, olives on a plate
  4. Pour the juice, oil and spices over the ingredients and top with Coriander
  5. Refridgerate until serving time

Additional Info

Quick and easy to make, bright and colourful. I use oranges a lot, it must go back to my youth growing up on a citrus orchard, happy days with always lots of oranges. I've sprinkled a few muntries in as well.   A great salad for any occasion whether it's the BBQ or a formal dinner party.
