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.
Serves: 1 per salad and 3-4 per dressing
1/2 cup blood orange juice.
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil.
1 garlic clove, minced.
1 leek strand, chopped.
Parsley stem and all, chopped.
Cilantro stem and all, chopped.
2 tbsp rice vinegar.
Stir or shake in a jar until well combined.
Chopped romaine lettuce.
Sliced, peeled,blood orange slices.
Tosd the lettuce and top with the remaining ingredients.
Drizzle with the dressing and enjoy!
