Blood Orange Salad

Citrus season is in full swing and I am loving it! I can’t help but obsess over blood oranges and their beautiful color. The deep red makes them perfect for serving with your Valentine’s Day meal. This salad is simple and serves two. Make it a nourishing date night in with your loved one.
