Next, cut segments from your oranges free from their white membranes by taking a whole, unpeeled orange and with a sharp knife shear away the peel by going deep enough so the knife takes the whole membrane off. Separate the orange into sections and save the juice.

Peel and slice the red onion into rings. Mince the fresh cilantro or watercress leaves. Squeeze your lemons into a small dish to gather the juice.

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl  except the pine nuts. Keep in the fridge for one day and sprinkle pine nuts before serving!
