Cara Cara Orange Panzanella
Here's a cheerful and fresh salad for you - Cara Cara oranges, tomatoes, red onion, and arugula mixed with a little oil and breadcrumbs make a delicious panzanella.
We've had so much rain this past week and it seems like the roads a mess of mud and leftover salt. Everything just seems a little cold and damp. And, I went to the doctor the other day and found out I have a vitamin D deficiency (not surprising, because my skin has not seen the sun in months). So I need fresh food - I need it as a visual pick-me-up and as fuel for my body. The citrus fruit is just gorgeous right now - I counted at least 10 kinds of oranges at the store yesterday. I have a bit of a bad habit of touching every fruit or veggie I'm interested in...something I'm sure my fellow shoppers really appreciate, and I just get too excited when something is in season and there is a bunch of it. Anyways, the Cara Cara oranges were looking awesome and I thought they'd be great in this salad.
Even if you're have a rainy day, I hope you enjoy this bright salad!
