Blood Orange Salad

A healthy winter salad packed with fruit and vitamines

Crunchy, sweet and healthy. A perfect salad for the winter season!

I am a big fan of salads and I really enjoy eating them. However, I know from experience that many don't think this way and in my opinion that is the case because they haven't tried a really good one. I love to add different ingredients to my salads to make them a little more exciting, whether that is some fruit, some cheese or nuts, or a delicious homemade dressing, there has to be something that makes the salad appealing and makes me get excited about it.

Since it is blood orange season at the moment, I thought I really need to make a salad with this beautiful fruit to take the advantage of its beautiful colour and sweet taste. That is when I thought about this recipe and started putting the pieces together. It doesn't have the usual cucumber or tomato in it as those flavours wouldn't really fit. It has my favourite lettuce, the romaine lettuce, some sweet red onion, sweet apple, blood oranges, some really salty feta cheese and a bit of walnuts to add some crunch. Believe me, this combination of flavours is really delicious and the homemade blood orange dressing is a perfect fit to go on top of the salad.

If you are doubting salads or just looking for a new delicious salad recipe, then I hope I got you interested in this colourful fruit salad :)

Enjoy Lovelies!

RECIPE

Blood Orange Salad

A healthy winter salad packed with fruit and vitamin's

​INGREDIENTS
 

  • 1 sweet apple

  • some lemon juice

  • 1 romaine lettuce head

  • 1 small red onion

  • 2-3 blood oranges

  • 1 handful walnuts

  • about 100g feta cheese

  • 2tbsp natural flavoured yogurt

  • 2tbsp freshly pressed blood orange juice

  • salt

  • pepper

DIRECTIONS

  1. De-seed the apples and slice them finely. Add into a big salad bowl and squeeze in some lemon juice. Mix shortly with your hands to cover the apples with the lemon juice. This will stop the apple slices from browning.

  2. Chop the romaine lettuce. Peel the onion and slice finely. Add the lettuce and the onion to the salad bowl.

  3. Peel the blood oranges with a sharp knife (peeling a citrus fruit with a dull knife can be very frustrating). Then slice the blood oranges and add to the salad bowl. If you are going to plate the salad onto a separate serving plate, you can leave some blood orange slices aside for decoration.

  4. Add a handful of walnuts to the salad and crumble in the feta cheese. Mix the salad well.

  5. To make the dressing combine the yogurt with the blood orange juice, season with salt and pepper and mix until well combined.

  6. Serve the blood orange salad with some drizzled dressing on top.
