From Sweet to Savory, be inspired by these 11 Unique Blood Orange Recipes from some of the top recipe creators out there!
I fell in love with Blood Oranges for the first time last winter when my local grocer featured them.
My kiddos love the color and the taste, and I have to admit, I really do too. While still distinctly orange in taste, they have berry overtones that just make them so delicious.
And that color! It just begs for something special.
Last year I was inspired to create a Sticky Asian Blood Orange Chicken. It’s a play on the classic Chinese takeout, orange chicken, but so much more. When blood oranges came back into season, I revamped it a little and decided to include it in a compilation of recipes featuring blood oranges guaranteed to inspire your inner chef and whet your taste buds.
I hope you are inspired by this fantastic citrus like I was with these 11 Unique Blood Orange Recipes from drinkalicious cocktails, scrumptious salads, savory entrees, to mouth-watering desserts. Enjoy!
