Orange, Mint & Hazelnut Salad

Layers of brightly colored oranges, arranged on a plate, add a much-needed vibrance to any winter meal. Here, juicy navel and blood oranges contrast perfectly with toasty hazelnuts and fresh mint leaves; we love to serve this salad as a beautiful starter for a dinner party.

    I can’t wait for blood orange season so I can go crazy with orange salads. This one looks so pretty and it has hazelnuts, so I’m in love! Ha!
