Visit any top-tier restaurant in the Spanish Mediterranean coast and you will find this Spanish Salad with Oranges, Anchovies & Tuna. It´s loaded with amazing flavors, beyond easy to make and done within a couple of minutes. This is the kind of salad that truly speaks the Spanish Mediterranean culture.
My favorite part about this salad, besides the simplicty of it, is the explosion of flavors it has. It´s sweet & savory, plus the combination of textures between the oranges, anchovies and tuna is absolutely brilliant.
To make this Spanish salad I used a bag of mixed greens lettuce, which contained arugula, spinach and red leaf lettuce. In all honesty, you can use whichever type of lettuce that you like, but this combination does work best.
The secret to this Spanish salad is to use tinned Spanish anchovies, tinned Spanish tuna and a great extra virgin olive oil. In a salad that uses such minimal ingredients, it´s always important to use the best quality ingredients. It truly makes all the difference.
