Blood Oranges


When I first arrived in Italy as a missionary I had a glass of blood orange juice! I had never heard of blood oranges- but I really like- no LOVE them. Now that I am married to a Sicilian we often eat them while in season. One of our favorites is an EASY orange salad. Simply peel the orange cut or split the segments add some sliced onion or fennel- OR both with a bit of olive oil and a touch of Fresh red pepper (not too much)- simple easy and ohhh so GOOD!

Sounds yummy. I actually had something with blood orange in it the other day, I can't remember what it was but I wondered if they were good to eat just like a normal orange.

I agree- this is one of the best salads I have ever had. Today we went to lunch at a new place in Sandy at the gravel pit area called Fratellis. they have this salad on the menu. I am not sure if they make it with blood oranges. I actually ordered the Gnocchi. It was good but Danny's Turkey & Pesto Panini was the best

I love the salad, you have made it before. I hate the name of the oranges and not too fond of the way they look now. But YUM!

Mmmm! I just bought some blood oranges last week, and I think I ate every single one--well, I shared one with Chris. Tastes like Italy. Love it.
