Snap Pea & Blood Orange Salad w/ Balsamic Vinaigrette


I had a leftover bag of snap peas that I wanted to use in a salad, but frankly my fridge revealed very few other vegetables (I was going grocery shopping later that evening). One of my twitter friends had suggested a while back that blood orange and balsamic are great flavors together, so I decided to make a balsamic vinaigrette and top everything with some chopped nuts from the previous nights candied nut adventure.

Snap Pea & Blood Orange Salad w/ Balsamic Vinaigrette

Ingredients:

1 bag snap peas
3 blood oranges
1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 tsp light olive oil
shot of agave
1/8 tsp sea salt
1/8 tsp garlic powder
pinch of black pepper
handful of chopped nuts

Directions:
  1. Cut snap peas into bite-sized pieces and place in bowl. Segment and blood oranges
  2. Squeeze blood orange juice from center/membrane and combine with vinegar, oil, and spices. Pour over peas, tossing to coat.
  3. Top with chopped nuts and serve.
The cost:
snap peas: 2.39
blood oranges: leftovers (2.99)
other ingredients: <1.00

Grand total: 3.39ish

Yum, this looks lovely! Simple, yet sophisticated... love blood oranges, too bad they aren't in season around these parts :(
