A salad full of sunshine!
It’s that time of year again! Snowdrops are popping their heads out of the ground, the days are ever so slightly longer, and I’m cramming blood oranges in to as many recipes as I can! This winter salad is full of zing and flavour, with the fruity sharpness of the oranges balanced out by the gentle sweetness from the onions and chicken. Cool, milky mozzarella is a welcome addition to any salad, and can be used instead of the chicken, if preferred.
