Here is an idea for something you can make with oranges or blood oranges beside orange madeleines and caramelized oranges. Something savory for a change. First I thought about making my grandmother’s orange salad with black olives but the boys wouldn’t like it. I decided to make my sister’s Waldorf salad but instead of pineapple I would use blood oranges, they are sweet, juicy and acidic, just like pine apple. It’s delicious!
