Recipe Of The Week – Blood Orange Salad

Blood Orange Salad

The blood orange is a variety of sweet orange but is slightly red in color. Besides giving you the much needed Vitamin C boost, blood oranges contain anthocyanins – the same red flavonoid pigments that give blueberries their colors and antioxidant properties.

So, here’s a recipe that will help you incorporate blood oranges into your diet.
