Blood Orange Waldorf Salad

Here is another recipe you can make with oranges or blood oranges beside orange madeleines and caramelized oranges. 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 with oranges instead of pineapple. Any sweet, juicy and acidic fruit would work. This salad is exceptionally delicious.
