When life hands you a big bag of oranges, you make a nice paleo salad with orange vinaigrette, right?
Here’s the deal. My neighbor came over with a bag full of fresh-picked oranges from his tree. I was thrilled. I don’t have a citrus tree, and he knows I cook pretty much all the time, so he thought I could use them.
I took the bag and he said he’d be back to see what I made with them, and expected a taste test. Okay…so no pressure.
I quickly decided on a tasty little summer salad – something light and fresh.
I know it may not even feel like spring yet where you are. But like one of our paleo friends from Australia reminded me last week, it is summer in some parts of the world.
So whether you’re just wishing for warmer weather or you’re already in the middle of it, this light tangy salad will bring a sunny smile to your face.
There are just a few ingredients to this one. I’ve learned with real food, sometimes less is more. So this salad is simple and refreshing. Great as an appetizer or the main course.
We’ve even made this with blood oranges before and loved it. It’s such a versatile and easy paleo recipe, feel free to adapt it any way you want. Add chicken or not, have it your way!
My favorite part is the orange vinaigrette. It’s tart, tangy, and delicious with bits and pieces of roughly crushed oranges thrown in for a little extra texture.
Give it a try. Vitamin C and juicy goodness in a simple salad.
And be sure and get outside, put your face to the sun, and enjoy the day!
