Blood Orange Salad with Meyer Lemon Vinaigrette



This is a super simple salad, with my two favorite citrus fruits, the Meyer lemon and blood orange, we ate this for valentines with a whole roasted red snapper :-), lovely. Its so easy to make your own vinaigrette's and much better for you :-) 




Ingredients:

  • a couple of handfuls of mixed greens
  • one blood orange thinly sliced 
  • about 10 slices of cucumber 
  • 1/2 a grated carrot 
for the vinaigrette

  • one juice of a meyer lemon
  • dash of balsamic vinegar
  • pinch of salt and pepper
  • tablespoon of orange juice
  • tablespoon of olive oil 
  • teaspoon of honey 
Method:

  1. chop the salad vegetables, grate carrot and add to a plate
  2. mix the ingredients of the vinaigrette and drizzle over the top
  3. enjoy 



Have a wonderful weekend everyone :-)

  2. I finally found some Meyer lemons, but I am not at home; I still bought some just so I could taste the sweetness; great salad.

  4. I can't get either blood oranges or Meyer lemons here, but I'll bet I could make a pretty good mock-up of this. I'll report back.
