It's true—orange and onion really does sound like an unusual combination. But when my husband tasted Orange and Red Onion Salad for the first time, he told me, "This one's worth at least three kisses!" I serve this salad with chicken...it likely would go well with fish, too. Up until a short time ago, we lived in the San Joaquin Valley, where almonds, peaches and other crops thrive. Now—along with our 17-year-old son and 12-year-old daughter—we're settling into our new home in the foothills and getting used to seeing row crops and dairy cows instead.
