  1. Put the spices in a small heatproof bowl. Put the oil and garlic in a small saucepan and set over a medium-high heat for 2-3 mins until golden and crisp. Immediately pour over the spices, add the orange zest, season and set aside.
  2. Trim the top and bottom from the oranges and pare away the peel, then slice the fruit into rounds. Whisk any excess juice from the pith and chopping board into the dressing with the vinegar and honey. To serve, roughly tear the mozzarella and arrange on a serving plate with the orange slices and herbs, spooning over the dressing.
