Cara Cara Orange And Arugula Salad

  1 rater(s)

Cara Cara oranges are commonly cut up for kids as a snack because they don’t contain any seeds and they are one of the sweeter oranges. This inherent sweetness makes the Cara Cara orange the perfect compliment to the peppery arugula. We must also mention that Cara Caras are rich in vitamins A & C, lycopene, fiber, and folate.
