Whip up this pretty blood orange moroccan salad to add some sunshine to any cloudy day. Blood oranges pair well with curry roasted vegetables for a savory-sweet salad.
This right here is my newest salad obsession! I was inspired by a similar salad recipe from the New York Times. I’ve loved adding blood oranges to my salads before and thought the combination of blood orange and roasted carrots sounded so good. If you haven’t had blood oranges before, they are less sweet than a traditional Florida orange and have a ruby red flesh. Since I don’t love having a lot of super sweet fruit in my salad, I find that blood oranges are a great compromise.
- To speed up the prep time on the day you want to serve this salad, I would roast your carrots and cauliflower a couple of days beforehand so they are ready to just toss in with the rest of your salad ingredients.
- If you want to keep leftover salad for lunch the next day, only add the dressing to the portion you plan to eat right away so it doesn’t get soggy.
- Make it vegan by simply leaving off the crumbled goat cheese.
