Honeyed orange salad with yogurt and pistachios Add to ...

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.
