    Cookgirl's Note:

    Tinkered and rearranged from a recipe found on apartmenttherapy.com. I also toyed with the thought of roasting the oranges (or {pan} grilling} and red onions but alas ran out of time, my fine foodie friends! Enjoying the seasonal specialty oranges available at the store *while I still have time*! PS I toasted the pistachios with the cumin seeds.

    Units: US | Metric

    For the salad

    • 2 -3 cups mixed greens (or any seasonal greens)
    • 2 -3 blood oranges, peeled and cut into segments
    • 1/2 small red onion, cut as thinly as possible
    • 2 -3 tablespoons fresh mint, julienned and a few leaves torn
    • 1/4 cup pecorino romano cheese (originally the cheese called for was feta but I subbed pecorino romano)

    For the dressing

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Place the orange segments in a large non-reactive bowl and stir in onions. Set aside.
    2. 2
      In a small skillet, heat the olive oil on medium.
    3. 3
      Add the cumin seeds and cook until the cumin seeds pop slightly and a lovely fragrance emits from the pan. Lower the heat if the seeds appear to be cooking too quickly.
    4. 4
      Add vinegar to the pan and swirl to mix. Season with salt and pepper and toss all over the citrus and greens.
    5. 5
      When plating, add mint and pistachios to the tops of each portion.
