A delicious, winter salad featuring blood oranges and balsamic vinegar. A delicious mix of sweet and savoury, the flavours in this salad are fresh, bright and just what you need this winter!
I really do have a bit of a blood orange obsession, and for good reason. These gorgeous little red oranges only appear for a short time every year, so I always have the urge to use them in EVERYTHING! They are great for topping smoothie bowls, in cocktails and on salads.
Blood oranges lend themselves really well to salads, their acidic quality perfectly balances the earthy, green leaves, and a hit of balsamic vinegar adds just a hint of sweetness. Throw on some avocado for creaminess, some nuts and seeds, and you’ve got yourself a delicious, winter, blood orange salad!
Blood Orange Salad with a Balsamic Vinegar Dressing
- 1 Blood Orange
- 2-4 large handfuls Greens (of your choice)
- 1/4 Red Onion
- 1 Avocado
- 4 tbsp Mixed Nuts and Seeds
- 1 tbsp Balsamic Vinegar
- 1 tsp olive oil
- Sprouts (for topping)
- Place the greens in the bottom of your salad bowls. Whisk together the balsamic vinegar and olive oil and toss with the salad leaves.
- Slice the blood oranges and chop off the skins. Slice into pieces and arrange on top of the leaves. Finely slice the red onion and sprinkle a few pieces on top.
- Sprinkle over the mixed nuts and seeds, the sprouts and slice up the avocado to finish.
- Serve immediately.

Artificial light can be so tricky!! The winter months certainly force the need for it in my region. These photos (and that salad!!) look so gorgeous. I love oranges and ALLLL citrus!
Same here Maria! I’m so glad I’m finally starting to get to grips with it, it will make this Winter a LOT easier, and maybe even the summer when the sun is a bit uncontrollable. Thanks for the kind comments! It was delicious, I’m blood orange obsessed too!
