Lettuce with Pistachios and Orange dressing

A three step salad to celebrate the summer through taste and colour. Refreshing, original and slightly French. They love to put crème fraiche in everything. 😉

  • 1⁄2 cup shelled pistachios, lightly toasted and roughly chopped
  • 2 navel oranges, peel and pith removed and flesh segmented, juice reserved
  • 1⁄2 cup creme fraiche
  • 1⁄4 cup finely chopped chives
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste


  1. Combine lettuce, pistachios, and orange segments in a bowl.
  2. Whisk reserved orange juice with creme fraiche, 3 tbsp. chives, salt, and pepper; pour over salad and toss to combine.
  3. Garnish with remaining chives.
