Mixed greens topped with crumbled gorgonzola cheese, chunks of blood orange and chopped pecans

I love blood oranges! These oranges are originally from Sicily, but have become quite popular here in the US, if your lucky enough to find blood oranges where you live buy them, if not, regular oranges would do. This makes a great light lunch loaded with vitamin C, vitamin E, fiber, antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids.

  1. I can’t get blood oranges in my neck of the woods. I don’t know that I’ve ever had them actually. I’m assuming a person could use just regular oranges for this. Will there be any differences in the recipe or things I need to think about to make it taste the same as yours?

  2. Wow, I'm not stuck on any particular brand, I use all brands. They all taste so different. Give it a try and let me know what you think!

  3. Ah! This looks so yum! I've gotta try it. I notice that a handful of your recipes call for balsamic, white-wine and red-wine vinegars. I've never really dabbled with those types of vinegars. Which brand do you use/recommend?

  4. I really want to try this one. It looks great!
