Recipe type: salad
Cuisine: Mediterranean
Serves: 3-4
  • 2 Sunkist® Blood Oranges
  • 3 Sunkist Cara Cara Oranges
  • 1 tsp Mediterranean Seasoning Mix (Salt Included) + ½ tsp Extra
  • 2-3 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 Lime, Juiced
  • 1 tbsp Honey
  • 2 tbsp Sliced Pistachios
  • ½ cup Thinly Sliced Red Onion (opt.)
  • 1-2 tbsp Chopped Mint Leaves for Garnishing
  1. In a small bowl, add olive oil, lime juice, honey and Mediterranean seasoning mix. Whisk it using a spoon until it's mixed well and keep aside.
  2. Slice a little piece off the top and bottom of each orange, so you have a stable cutting surface. Trim away all the skin and pith with a small sharp knife without taking too much off the fruit. Slice oranges horizontally and arrange on a serving platter.
  3. Now spread the sliced pistachios and onion on top of the arranged orange slices.
  4. Stir the salad dressing with spoon and drizzle over the arranged salad.
  5. Sprinkle the seasoning mix as per your taste, then garnish it with chopped mint leaves.
  6. Let it sit for 5 mins and then serve.
Soak sliced onions in cold water and a pinch of salt for 10 minutes, if desired, to mellow the flavor. Drain and dry before using.
You can garnish this salad with pomegranate arils if you like.
If you want a little spicier taste, then sprinkle a little paprika over the salad.
