For the candied walnuts
For the dressing
Preheat the oven to 180C/160C Fan/Gas 4. Segment the oranges, reserving any juice for the dressing. Set aside in the fridge.
For the candied walnuts, place the walnuts in a bowl and cover them with boiling water, leave for a minute and then drain them. Immediately place the walnuts in a lidded container and add the icing sugar and cinnamon. Close the container and shake it to coat all the walnuts with the sugar and cinnamon. Line a baking tray with baking parchment. Spread the walnut pieces on the tray and drizzle with olive oil. Bake for 8 minutes, or until golden brown.
In a small bowl, mix all the dressing ingredients together. When ready to serve, toss the lettuce in the dressing and pile onto each plate. Arrange the beetroot, orange segments and walnuts on the plates and sprinkle with feta. Serve immediately.
