To make the dressing:

  1. Carefully peel the orange half and cut peel into fine strips.
  2. Place peel strips in a small pan, cover with water and bring to the boil.
  3. Cook for 3 minutes. Drain well, reserving orange strips, and cool.
  4. Mix together the lemon juice, oil and season to taste with salt, pepper and sugar. Add the thyme.
  5. Remove the pith from the orange half, chop into fairly small pieces and arrange in a salad bowl with the spinach leaves.
