Citrus season has arrived and I’m falling hard, as you do when the dead of winter hits. The liquid sunshine of these fruits is very welcome on cold, grey, foggy Nantucket winter days. A favorite is (obviously) blood orange, with its gorgeous dark juice and tangy flavor, which lends itself to both sweet and savory dishes. I love this fruit in salads and donuts alike.
Blood orange brightens up this hearty lentil-barley salad and pairs perfectly with sweet, earthy roasted beets. This salad is a great addition to weekly meal prep, if that’s your jam. Whats your favorite way to enjoy these luscious fruits? Stay tuned for more citrus inspired sweet and savory recipes coming soon.
