This salad is a burst of freshness in the darkness of winter. Here in Florida it’s citrus season and I love to try to use all the delicious fresh oranges I can get. Naval oranges, tangerines, Valencia oranges all work, but I love to add the color and sweetness of blood oranges too. You can usually find them this time of year. Give them a try, I know you will not be disappointed!

Fresh Beet Salad with Oranges and Gorgonzola is beautiful and tasty. The colorful beets meld perfectly with the juicy oranges, crunchy walnuts, and the creamy earthy Gorgonzola. When you put everything over the bright mixed greens the colors pop.

Not only is this salad gorgeous, it is also easy and healthy. Beets are really good for you! They contain folic acid, iron, and calcium. Oranges have a ton of vitamin C which may help prevent colds and flu.

So give this salad a try and don’t be shy, let me know what  you think in the comments below.

Five on Friday Week 3

Welcome to the third post of Five on Friday. Every Friday I post a list the top five things that made me happy during the week. It could be anything from a new kitchen tool, new product, new food, recipe success, or maybe just a life event. No matter what it is, I share it with you here every Friday.

1 and 2 this week are combined. -I am so happy that this year I have an amazingly sweet class. I got to spend yesterday getting to know them. I am super excited to help them learn and grow this year. I am also very grateful that school started on a Thursday this week, so I can spend two days focusing on setting up the room, getting to know everyone, and teaching procedures before we actually start new lessons next week.

3-This week I ran to Publix for a few little things. I knew it was going to rain, but I thought I could be in and out quickly, however I was wrong. Just as I was checking out the clouds burst with rain. I was very grateful for the  gentleman who works there. He watched my groceries, gave me an umbrella so I didn’t get soaked getting to my car, and loaded the groceries into my car for me. I know I have said it before, but this kind of customer service is wonderful and I love Publix!

Also, if you someone does go above and beyond to help you at Publix, please call and let the managers know. The reward the helpful person with food! Everyone loves to be appreciated and it only take a minute to call.

4-I am happy that I get both Saturday and Sunday off this week. Last week we had open house on Saturday and I am very tired!!! I can’t wait to sleep this weekend and go for a long run before breakfast.

5-School is back in session and I am so happy that I made some easy Curry Chicken Salad for lunch. It can be made in advance, it’s low-fat, is made with yogurt for extra protein and probiotics, it has a bit of sweetness from the grapes and a crunch from the almonds, and tastes amazing on crackers or a bed of lettuce. You can click on the link and it will take you right to the recipe so you can try it next week for yourself.

 

I would love to hear your top five too. Please leave me a comment with your top 5 below. Don’t forget to sign up for the weekly newsletter too. Let’s spread a little joy and be happy for the little things in life. Happy Friday! 😀
