Blood Orange and Butternut Salad

Blood Orange and Butternut Salad


Bring some sunshine into your home with this beautiful salad.  It honestly makes me so happy just looking at it because I feel like it’s smiling at me!  Just a short post today, because there really is not much to say about a salad but please do try it as experimenting and playing around with different ingredients makes for a varied diet. 

Many times we shy away from using certain ingredients in a different format like butternut raw in a salad, but this way gives a new modern twist to the 80’s version of a carrot and orange salad.
