Blood Orange Endive Salad Recipe

Blood Orange Endive Salad

 

A simple salad made with endive lettuce, blood oranges, Gorgonzola with a blood orange vinaigrette.

Yesterday I had the honor of being the Godmother to my beautiful niece, Mia Rose. After the church, there was a reception dinner where I totally indulged on some not-so-light dishes and of course, cake.

I need to brag about this cake for a minute because my very talented

aunt made this, although my iPhone really doesn’t do it justice… So pretty you almost don’t want to eat it!

 

This morning I ran 2 miles and after my run I did some grocery shopping (best time to go food shopping BTW, I always make the best choices after working out) and found these beautiful blood oranges. I love the color of blood oranges and I seldom see them, so a salad is today’s light lunch.

 

This is also great with goat cheese in place of gorgonzola, and you can use raspberries or strawberries in place of the oranges.
