This bright and colorful Orange Feta Pistachio Salad is packed with nutrient dense baby kale, sweet Cara Cara oranges, and tangy feta. It comes together with a tangy and lightly sweet Cara Cara vinaigrette you can whip up in under ten minutes. You don't want to miss this during citrus season, or any time of year!
Put the baby kale/spring mix in a large mixing bowl. Season lightly with salt and pepper to taste.
Add the vinaigrette, and mix with tongs or gloved hands to coat the lettuce well.
Gently fold in the feta, roasted pistachios and Cara Cara orange wedges.
Divide evenly between 5 or 6 bowls and serve immediately.
Optional - garnish the top of each bowl with a Cara Cara orange round.
In a mini food processor combine Cara Cara orange juice, honey, vinegar, Dijon and 1 tbsp of extra light olive oil. Blend for 10 seconds to combine.
With the mini food processor on high, drizzle in the 3/4 cup of olive oil (very slowly if it doesn't have a pour spout like the one in my post). It will take 5 to 8 minutes to incorporate all of the oil.
Serve immediate. Store in the fridge for up to 1 week.
