It’s blood orange season!!!  I’m so excited!  They’re just the prettiest fruit and so, so sweet I can’t get enough of them!  I threw together this salad over the weekend and it was too delicious and beautiful to keep to myself.  I hope you love as much as I do!  xx- Sarah {more after the jump}

Kale and Blood Orange Salad

serves 2


1 small bunch dino kale

4 small oranges

1 small shallot, very thinly sliced

high quality Extra Virgin Olive Oil

maldon salt or other large flake finishing salt


– Remove stems from kale (it’s preferable to have a small bunch of dino kale, the leaves will be less bitter!)

– Wash greens, dry in a salad spinner or with paper towels and tears into manageable pieces.  Massage kale to soften it.  (more about massaging kale here)

– Cut peel from 3 of the blood oranges and slice into rounds.

– Combine greens, shallot slices and oranges on a plate

– Drizzle with olive oil, squeeze the juice from the remaining blood orange over the salad and generously sprinkle finishing salt over the top.  Serve immediately!

    this is just gorgeous! I love how you sliced the oranges into rounds. I am horrible at my attempts to segment them & this looks much prettier anyway!

    One big advantage is their ease of use, in most cases all you will
    have to do is put in the food and turn it on. To address this, Ninja has
    extra containers for sale on their site for $10-$30. Every
    time I use this tool (and it is quite often) I have a blast and
    am amazed by its capabilities and the end results of my dishes.
    One question that is asked frequently is “What is the best way to wean my puppy onto BARF raw dog food.

    Such a great recipe…just included this in my “Oh My…Salad!” post. What other lettuce choice would you choose besides kale?

    Now you can share those memories and feelings again, let the classic toys inspire you
    and your children’s play. Considering how much we pay for other toys with batteries that just end up littering the landfill, these
    toys are an absolutely excellent deal. The black one is known as a Kong Extreme, designed for the most
    powerful chewers. actually they’re very recent and return to history.
    This is a 100% organic cotton toy through a fair trade company that is found on Amazon. Educational Baby games and toys are so important, they stimulate your babies brain, creating interest
    and arousing curiosity for further development of their mind.

    Plastic battery-operated toys are a double-edged sword of polluting toxins because batteries cannot be recycled.
    Imagine the price it would have fetched if it was from the 1963 series of Doctor Who.

    Your young children are certain to be biting at your ankles
    to get them the hottest toys for this Xmas. Kids are smart and we should never underestimate that.
    Kids in need can wish for whatever they want as Toys R Us and Shaq try
    to fulfill those wishes. They list many of the most in demand products for children of
    all ages to ensure this coming Christmas is a fun filled, pleasurable affair, preventing therefore,
    any risk of disappointment. Infalatable swimming pools as outdoor toys are
    a favourite among children in summer. Similarly, the earth tone appears more
    brown-gray to your dog. Many of the toys that are shared among
    several children over the years are wood.

    Unfortunately this cultivar is not complete with a scent, but they are good for cutting to take into the house and do last well in water.
    The oil, lotion or cream provides additional benefits as well as locks in the moisture.
    The lower quality rolls might be cheaper, but they tend to leave behind residue on your printer
