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!
I didn’t intend this as a snow day outfit. Snow just happened and I (for once) happened to be dressed for it. I wore this to church yesterday and while we were out afterwards grabbing a quick bite, this glorious (I use the term glorious because, wait for it……the snow was actually pretty) scene happened….
Seriously, how cute are these cups? Confession – I actually bought them for the blog alone. I realized I didn’t have anything fun to use for blog photos and who doesn’t need an extra dose of pizzazz in their life? But what’s more amazing are these parfaits. I have always been a fan of parfaits…
Part II of our Paris trip (Part I HERE) ….I apologize for the overload of pictures in advance! One of the highlights of Paris was our trip to the Palace of Versailles. I cannot begin to tell you how amazing this place was and how enamored we were with it (having an antiques business does…
Whether or not the weather will admit it, we are a few days into spring which means bringing all our warmer weather-friendly outfits out of retirement. It’s hard to remember what pieces we adored months ago because they’re all stashed somewhere or another in the deep crevices of our closets. So let’s discuss the 6…
Cornflake chicken doesn’t exactly sound amazing when you first hear the name. But when you see the parmesan, garlic and parsley that is added in to crust the chicken, then you begin to realize that it’s not just plain chicken crusted with plain cereal. The components of this dish combine perfectly to create a…
I made this dish a few weeks ago out of a necessity to use up all my quickly deteriorating vegetables, zucchini in particular. I have to admit — I had no clue just how good this meal was going to turn out before I started on my venture. In fact, I was a bit hesitant…
