How do you select your Navel Orange? Find an orange with a "navel" (like the one pictured). Choose a fruit that feels heavy in your hand and has a sweet odor. That one will be the most delicious! My favorite variety is Cara Cara, which has a redder inside hew.
In addition to snacking, navel orange wedges are great additions to salads. Or try mixing the juice of 1 orange, 1 lime, dollop of sour cream, drizzle of olive oil, salt, pepper and other herbs/spices (like cilantro, basil, cayenne pepper) for a light, citrus salad dressing.
