#PerfectFoodles - Citrus salad with feta and parsley

My love for Citrus borders on obsession as you know. So I was pretty excited to get my hands on some fab Organic Santras (as oranges are called in India) last week from Luv Thy Farmer. They were wiped out by the kids before I could say Orange juice! I did manage to make a marmalade out of a few so I could preserve some of the sun warmed goodness of our pure Indian Santras - pure Santra in a bottle but that's more or less over as well. And one afternoon when Aman was at school and Natasha was asleep, I indulged in a bowl of this lovely salad I had foodled a while ago. I developed it a few years ago for My Nature's Basket Salad series. I used up the last of some Feta in olive oil I had in the fridge and snipped up a handful of lovely flat leaf parsley. Santras are still around; try this before they are all gone!

Great Use of Oranges in salad. I am also Indian but never assume that oranges can be used in such a innovative way.
