Citrus Salad with Oranges, Pistachios, and Pomegranate Seeds

Oranges are one of the most healthful fruits around -- and one of the most versatile.

On the health side of things, oranges are just chock full of vitamins. Known best for their extremely high vitamin C content, oranges also contain vitamin A, which is an important antioxidant, and B6, which helps with healthy skin and fighting fatigue. Oranges contain potassium and calcium, are a great source of fiber, and may even help lower cholesterol. They also help prevent kidney stones and boost respiratory health, among other benefits. No wonder oranges are listed as a superfood.

Orange-flower water can give even a simple fruit salad a faraway lilt, but adding too much of it leaves a dish tasting like old-fashioned soap. Use this ingredient with serious discretion—start with 1/8 tsp.


4 Servings

    2 navel oranges
    1 blood orange
    2 tangerines
    2 tablespoons pomegranate seeds
    1/8 teaspoon orange-flower water (optional)
    1 tablespoon chopped roasted pistachios
    Flaky sea salt (for serving)


Ingredient Info: Orange-flower water, a flavoring extract, is available at liquor stores, Middle Eastern markets, and in the cocktail-mixers or baking sections of some supermarkets.

Using a sharp knife, remove peel and pith from navel oranges, blood orange, and tangerines. Working over a bowl, cut between membranes to release segments into bowl; reserve juice.

Mix citrus segments and juice with pomegranate seeds and orange-flower water, if using. Top with pistachios and salt.
