A number of recipes in this series have had oranges as one of the ingredients. Oranges have been popular on Scottish recipes ever since Mrs Keiller made marmalade in Dundee in 1797. Here is a starter which will get any meal off with a zing.

Main Ingredients:
2 oranges
4oz (100g) Scottish cheddar cheese, diced
1 grapefruit
4 slices of orange

2 tablespoons mayonnaise
3 tablespoons lemon juice
2 oz grated cheddar
Salt and pepper

Remove the skin and pith (membrane) from the whole oranges and grapefruit and cut into bite size pieces and mix with the diced cheese.
Make the dressing by combining the mayonnaise, grated cheese, lemon juice and seasoning to taste. Pour over the fruit and cheese. Place in individual dishes and sprinkle with paprika and add the slice of orange on top.
