So I just recently discovered blood oranges. They had been on my list of “must-try” for ages but I just never got around to it. They look really weird and they stain like crazy. I would know. But they are delish and full of flavor. Sweet with a slight undertone of tartness, these red oranges are perfect for eating alone, for fresh squeezed orange juice and in today’s case, salad. I combined them with another orange favorite, Cara Cara Oranges (a sweeter navel orange). A perfect salad for this time of year and one that makes me really excited for summer!
BLOOD AND CARA CARA ORANGE SALAD WITH CITRUS-BALSAMIC DRESSING
2 Cara Cara oranges, separated into slices
2 blood oranges, separated into slices
3 c spring mix lettuce
2 T feta, crumbled
3 tsp pistachios, roasted/salted
1/2 c red grapes
Yield: ~3/4 c
1/4 c fresh squeezed orange juice (juice from cara/blood oranges)
1/4 c olive oil
2 tsp maple syrup
1 tsp balsamic vinegar
dash salt & pepper
3/4 tsp dijon mustard
In a serving platter, place lettuce and oranges. Top with feta, pistachios and grapes.
In a small bowl, whisk together orange juice, olive oil, maple syrup, balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper and dijon mustard. Serve alongside salad.
Thank you to Melissa’s for providing the oranges. And a big thank you to you for supporting all of FashionEdible’s collaborations!
Chicken marsala is one of my favorite Italian dishes. And it’s one I can make in a few short minutes. The flavors of Marsala are so unique with a hint of sweetness (I always use sweet Marsala). Marsala wine comes from the town of Marsala in Sicily; besides being used to flavor recipes like tiramisu, Marsala is…
**sponsored by zappos** We drove down to North Carolina last week because A wanted to attend a furniture trade show in the furniture capital of the USA: High Point. There’s really nothing to do in the area so I took the pups on a hike while he visited a few vendors’ booths and then we…
Summer is coming and with it, salad. I love basically any kind of salad. And sometimes I can even forgo the dressing, depending on the ingredients. This salad is a fruit-lovers paradise: mangos, strawberries, avocado. A bowl of deliciousness. Cheese is a must – I used feta here because it’s one of the best cheeses…
Calling this recipe apple sausage stuffing is a bit misleading at first. It kind of sounds like I put apple sausages into the stuffing. Not that that’s bad – we were over at a friend’s house recently and we tried apple cinnamon sausage for the first time. At first I was thinking “Apples and sausage? Yes. But…
Saturday, I decided to whip up some granola. We hadn’t had any in a while and I was cravings some. I ignored my typical recipe, threw together some of my favorite ingredients, and was more than thrilled with the results. Sadly, we finished about half already – trust me, it’s addictive. Typically, we eat this…
I finally got snapchat. After centuries of debating over it, my 3×3 bloggers convinced me that it was time to pull myself out of the 18th century and download it. While I’m embarrassed to admit just how long it took me to figure it out and finally post something, I will say that I felt…
