Author Notes:

I had scallops in the fridge and their sweetness really does compliment the flavors, but this salsa could easily compliment any number of things like a shrimp kebab, a juicy lamb chop or a grilled chicken breast. This is a quick and easy fix to a boring protein.

  • 2 blood oranges, peeled, sectioned and cut into 1/4 inch pieces
  • 2 Navel oranges, blood oranges, peeled, sectioned and cut into 1/4 inch pieces
