Spanish Salad with Oranges, Anchovies & Tuna

From Albert Bevia:
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.

The Story of our Balsamic Vinegar

The Apollo Balsamic vinegar is a real one-of-a-kind, artisanal product based on a delicious Late Harvest Riesling made by Diana in 1984, and aged in the winery cellar for the past 35 years. Through a unique process of reduction and acidification, we are able to produce about 600 bottles of Balsamic annually – for a few more years, anyway…   Unlike most balsamics on the market, the Apollo Balsamic has the complex age-carmelized grape sweetness with a hint of oak barrel aging, and just the right amount of vinegar acidity to balance those concentrated flavors.  Like authentic Italian balsamics, the Apollo Balsamic is best used sparingly as a condiment to enrich various dishes – such as fresh strawberries, salad greens, steak, cooked vegetables, or even ice cream.
