The flavor of blood oranges:
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.
This salad is good for you!
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, chopped pistachios for their cholesterol-lowering, anti-aging properties, and, of course, their undeniable crunch and flavor.
Not to mention all that sits on top of a bed of super healthy mixed baby greens and spinach leaves.
I've topped my salad with an easy-to-make tangerine balsamic dressing which adds just the right amount of sweetness to the salad and compliments the flavor of the blood oranges quite nicely.
An affiliate link for the tangerine balsamic vinegar is in the recipe card 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.
