Orange Pistachio Salad

Orange Pistachio Salad

I’m working on highlighting some delicious side dishes this month because I feel like they are often overlooked and under-appreciated. I whipped up this refreshing orange pistachio salad over the weekend and honestly could have eaten many servings of it. It is light and really highlights the powerful flavor of winter oranges.

Truth be told, I did eat this as an appetizer before indulging in a burger, but you know what, this was such a yummy way to enjoy some greens. Not all salads need to be entree size or complicated. Letting a few in season ingredients shine can lead to something wonderful too. Also, making a salad that resembles a sunflower makes eating your greens that much more cheerful, especially on a gloomy winter day. Happy eating!
