Blood orange salad and dressing

blood blood orange salad and dressing

there was a bag of blood oranges in the fridge and they were about to go bad. Luckily I decided to make a salad with the overly juicy oranges before they went bad and I even feel like getting more oranges!

I have a problem with oranges (mostly navel oranges) when I start eating them I cant stop!


There are many types of oranges, but this recipe calls for blood oranges, but you can use any type of oranges you like or have on hand. If you use a different type of orange the flavor will change slightly and the recipe will be your own.


I used romaine lettuce, but bib or butter crunch lettuce will work just as good if not better.
