Blood Orange & Persimmon Winter Salad Blood oranges have to be one of the most beautiful fruits. The bold red and orange colors combined with the sweet flavor make this unique citrus an all-time favorite. Sometimes they are difficult to find, so when you see them, make sure to snag them! They are delicious to snack on, make fresh squeezed juice or add to a healthy, green salad.

Blood oranges are like a superfruit, high in antioxidants, vitamin C, potassium, and fiber. The other superstar in this salad is the pretty persimmon! Persimmons are a great source of vitamin A, fiber, B-complex vitamins, and antioxidants.
