Appetizers In Orange Colors | Valentina Cirasola | Author and Designer

Do you want to surprise your guests? Place on the appetizers table this dish with orange slices. Everyone will ask what’s in the platter even though everyone will recognize the orange slices. Don’t tell them how they are prepared just encourage your guests to try and you better have another platter ready and saved, because the first one will go very fast.

Oranges as Tomatoes-A

Colors have chakra-healing properties. The womb/spleen chakra  represented with orange colors is located below the navel and is responsible for creativity, intimacy, warmth and sex. To invigorate the orange chakra you must eat food that provide water like oranges and then use water in your exercise and cleansing practices such as swimming, water aerobics, sauna and Epsom salt bath.

How to prepare the orange slices:
Wash the orange skin well, cut slices about 1/4” thick, align them in a serving platter, on top sprinkle a couple of teaspoons of sugar and salt to your liking, finely chopped garlic, oregano and a swirl of olive oil. Eat them with the skin. You will experience a tangyness from the skin of the oranges, sweetness from the pulp made sweeter by the sugar and the savory of the spices, all together will create a burst of flavors in the mouth.  Your guests will go crazy, promise! Ciao,
