ClemenGold® and Ginger Dressing:

  1. Combine all of the ingredients, except the olive oil, in a blender and whizz together.

  2. Turn the heat up to high, add the ClemenGold® juice and fry for another minute. Set aside.
  3. Peel the ClemenGold® mandarins and, using a sharp knife, slice lengthways into rounds (see image).
  4. Grill the bacon in the oven at 180 °C until crispy.
