Honeyed orange salad with yogurt and pistachios

Donna Griffith for The Globe and Mail/donna griffith The Globe and Mail

Equal parts tangy and sweet, this versatile salad is fresh enough for a first course yet rich enough for dessert. Cara Cara oranges are medium-sized, early-to-midseason navel oranges believed to be a cross between the Washington navel and the Bahia navel from Brazil. Sweet and low in acid, they have a flavour more complex than most navel varieties and have been described as evoking notes of cherry, rose petal, orange and blackberry.

Make-ahead tip: Peel, slice and refrigerate oranges the day before. If using whole pistachios, shell and chop them, too.

Ready time: 10 minutes


4 Cara Cara oranges, peeled and sliced into ¼ -inch-thick rounds

1 500-millilitre tub Greek yogurt

6 tablespoons runny honey

½ cup pistachios, shelled and sliced


Place orange slices on individual plates or a platter. Drizzle with honey and scatter pistachios overtop.

Serve Greek yogurt on the side or top each plate with a large spoonful.
