Bitter Greens with Blood Oranges and Hazelnuts
Prep: 15 minutes; other: 3 minutes
A blood orange tastes like it has been kissed by a raspberry--tart and sweet. Its ruby red-streaked flesh adds vibrant, dramatic color to this salad. Quickly toast the hazelnuts for this recipe in a skillet over medium-high heat. The toasted nuts and spicy, slightly bitter greens lend the perfect balance of flavors to this beautiful salad.
