Waldorf Salad With Blood Oranges

My older sister who is a great cook and baker gave me the recipe for this salad. She used to make it a lot when we lived in New York. Her recipe is with pineapple but I didn’t have any so I used blood oranges instead. It’s delicious with both but blood oranges make it look so much more dramatic.

If you bought a sack of blood oranges and not sure what to do with them make my orange madeleines and caramelized oranges

Waldorf Salad With Blood Oranges

This is a great salad to make in the winter when citrus are in season. It require only 5 ingredients and 10 minutes. The contrast between the sweet and acidic oranges and crunchy earthy celery is outstanding.
