Winter’s Salad

Of course, we should still eat salads in the cold winter months, and this is a flavourful one, easy to make, nothing outrageous to purchase. Give it a try!


  • 2 large blood oranges
  • 1 small head of chicory, torn into small pieces
  • 2 heads of Belgian endive, sliced into 1/4 inch slivers
  • 1/2 small red onion, sliced thin
  • 1/4 cup Arbequina olives, pitted and chopped
  • 2 tsp. olive oil
  • pinch of salt and pepper

Peel the skin off the oranges and all the pith. Holding the oranges over a bowl to catch the juice, cut the membrane on the orange sections and carefully remove.

Put the orange sections in a bowl and set aside. Squeeze any remaining juice from the membranes into the bowl holding the juice.

Add the greens, onion, olive oil, salt and pepper to the bowl with the orange sections. Add the orange juice and toss to mix well.

Serve immediately.

Told you it was simple…..tasty……fresh….and, oh yeah, healthy.
