Oranges! Salad ideas? And...?

This year I have a better than usual crop of both Navel (tree right out by the sidewalk but less thievery this year!) and Blood oranges. Happy combinations you've enjoyed??

  1. This was one of my favorite salads when I lived in the Bay Area and could get fresh dungeness crabs. I used oranges instead of grapefruit in the salad.

    1. I like to mix orange supremes and slices of roasted beets together.

      Yesterday we did a salad of arugala with orange supremes and shaved parmesan

        I love oranges and roasted beets together!

        In the summer I also do a variation on the caprese salad, using tomatoes, fresh mozz., and sliced oranges.

          Yesterday I did the supremes, Parmesan, dried cranberries and toasted pecans in a salad mix with ginger/pomegrante molasses dressing. Tasty.

      2. 20 pitted and halved of black olives (Kalamata or oil or salt cured)
        4 oranges,peeled and sliced horizontally both of yours would be lovely
        juice one lemon, meyer would be nice
        1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
        1 clove very finely chopped garlic
        1/2 tsp freshly ground,toasted cumin
        1/2 tsp sweet Spanish smoked paprika
        1 tsp finely chopped fresh mint
        mix olive and oranges
        whisk together everything else, taste, adjust as needed
        pour dressing over salad,toss and then 2 pinches paprika over the top

        1. Beet, orange and fennel are a nice combo! With a vinegar dressing.

          1. What about an orange liqueur (if you have a whole tree of them)...
