It’s citrus season right now and I’m so excited about this new blood orange salsa! Fresh salsa just tastes better when the ingredients are in season and these juicy blood oranges are a delicious replacement for tomatoes.

You already know all about oranges for their immune boosting properties but blood oranges boost a few extra benefits that make them even better! They contain an antioxidant called Anthocyanin  which gives the orange it’s deep red, sometimes even purple color. Antioxidants have long been known to protect the body from cancers and heart disease, but Anthocyanin in particular has been shown to decrease LDL (bad cholesterol) and strengthen blood vessels! I love food that gives back!
