True confession time? I’d never even tried a blood orange before making this Blood Orange Salad.

Oh sure I’d seen them in the stores often enough, and on other people’s blogs, but since I’m not that fond of eating citrus fruits on their own, I’ve never added them to my shopping cart. 

**Please Note – The printable recipe card with detailed instructions, complete ingredient measurements, and nutritional information for making Antioxidant Rich Blood Orange Salad with Blueberries & Fets is available near the end of this post.

The ingredient list;

  • Blood Oranges
  • Mixed Baby Greens
  • Avocado
  • Red Onion
  • Feta Cheese
  • Pistachios
  • Balsamic Vinegar
  • Dijon Mustard
  • Avocado Oil
  • Ground Coriander

It wasn’t until I heard someone on television describes the taste of blood oranges being a combination of oranges and raspberries (I happen to love raspberries) that I decided to give them a try and find out what I’d been missing.

I don’t know about you, but I love a salad that’s packed full of all sorts of flavors and textures. One that’s full to the brim with colorful ingredients, and one that I can feel good about eating because I know that I’m doing something good for my body. This Antioxidant Rich Blood Orange Salad with Blueberries & Feta is just that!

Along with the deeply colorful blood oranges and blueberries, I’ve added the healthy monounsaturated fat from everyone’s favorite… the avocado.

Red onion slices add a tart and tangy bite, while the goat cheese crumbles add a creamy richness that offsets the tartness of the onion and provides bone-friendly calcium without all that stomach upsetting lactose.

And last, but certainly never least, crushed pistachios for their cholesterol-lowering, anti-aging properties and, of course, their undeniable crunch and flavor. Not to mention all that sits on top a bed of super healthy mixed baby greens and spinach leaves.

Yes, sir! This Antioxidant Rich Blood Orange and Blueberry Salad will do your body good!

I’ve topped my salad with an easy to make homemade tangerine balsamic dressing (in the recipe card) which adds just the right amount of sweetness to the salad and compliments the flavor of the blood oranges quite nicely.

I’m leaving the Amazon affiliate link for the tangerine balsamic vinegar below if you’re interested in purchasing some. However, please feel free to substitute your favorite balsamic vinegar (it doesn’t need to be citrus infused) in place of the tangerine balsamic, and then follow on with the dressing recipe as written. The tangerine balsamic vinegar is only a flavor option, and certainly not required.
