Blood orange and radish salad with coriander

Finally weekend although the weather is pretty gloomy, but maybe this colourful salad can cheer up a bit. I was again reading in The Flavour Thesaurus by Niki Segnit and this is another flavour combination recommendation for coriander leaves: oranges, radishes and onion. Instantly when I read about the combination, I wanted to make such a salad. And as it happens I still have blood oranges left, so it was perfect. Is the blood orange season maybe a bit longer this year? I'm not sure, but I was able to get quite a few of them this year, possibly also due to my hoarding. This salad was very vibrant, punchy and healthy and the flavours really did compliment each other very well.

Here's how I made the salad as a light lunch:

3 blood oranges
Handful of radish
¼ sweet onion
Handful of fresh coriander leaves

Slice the blood oranges and radishes.

Chop the onion finely.

Mix everything together and scatter coriander leaves on the top.


I'm sharing this recipe with this month's No Croutons Required cooking challenge hosted by Jacqueline from Tinned Tomatoes and co-hosted by Lisa from Lisa's Kitchen. I will probably be making more and more salads now when the fresh spring produce properly hits the shops.

Enjoy your weekend!
