Hello, and a Refreshing Salad

Hello anyone who's reading this! My name is Jess and a lot of my cooking revolves around trying to be frugal. Lots of my ingredients come from the reduced section of the supermarkets and I enjoy turning my finds into interesting and tasty meals.
I'm also trying to improve my presentation of food and my ability to take nice pictures of it. So any tips or suggestions would be very much appreciated.
Moroccan Orange Salad
This is a lovely simple recipe to get my blog started off. This salad is ideal for a low cal pudding or a light summery breakfast. Here I've used some juicy navel oranges I got that were reduced to 49p for a bag of 6! And my other bargin was a mint plant for 15p in Tesco.
- 2 Oranges per person
- A few drops of Rose Water
- Fresh Mint
- Cinnamon

The method is very simple, Cut the skin and peel off the oranges and then slice so you end up with circular pieces of orange. Then arrange them on a plate, sprinkle a few drops of rose water over the oranges, grate over some cinnamon and finish with fresh mint leaves.
