These gorgeous oranges are a wonderful addition to a cheeseboard; or, remove the rinds and toss into a salad!
3 Cara Cara oranges, sliced into thick wedges
½ cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons honey
½ cup pistachios or other toasted nut of your choice, chopped
1. Preheat the oven to broil. Line a baking sheet or roasting pan with foil or parchment paper and place the orange wedges on pan. Sprinkle brown sugar evenly over the top of the exposed fruit.
2. Place under a broiler for 3-5 minutes, until the brown sugar is bubbly and beginning to brown and the edges are caramelized. Remove from oven. Drizzle orange wedges evenly with honey and top with the nuts. Serve warm.
A light, bright, and refreshing addition to any brunch lineup.
4 large handfuls of salad greens, such as mix of this week’s Lacinato kale and red-veined sorrel greens, washed and torn or chopped into bite-sized pieces
1 cup coarsely-chopped radicchio
2 Cara Cara oranges, sliced into segments
⅓ cup goat cheese, crumbled
3 tablespoons sliced almonds
¼ cup pomegranate arils
Fresh ground pepper
1. In a small skillet over medium heat, toast the almonds for a few minutes, stirring frequently so they don’t burn. Once the almonds are fragrant and starting to turn golden, remove from heat.
2. In a large serving bowl, combine the greens, radicchio, segmented blood oranges, goat cheese, pomegranate arils and warm almonds.
3. Just before serving, drizzle the salad with about ½ cup of the citronette, tossing lightly to combine. Add more dressing as desired, and season generously with fresh ground pepper.
This bright and fresh salad shines a spotlight on light, tender, succulent fava greens.
4 cups packed fava leaves/shoots
2 Cara Cara oranges zested, segmented, and juices reserved (use zest for dressing)
2 grapefruits segmented and juices reserved
¼ cup crumbled feta cheese
½ cup toasted and chopped walnuts
1. To make the dressing, combine the reserved orange juices and grapefruit juices with the shallot, salt, pepper, and orange zest in a small bowl. Slowly whisk in the oil until well blended.
2. Place the fava leaves in a large serving bowl and lightly toss with the dressing. (You might not use all of it.)
3. Divide the fava leaves among four plates and arrange the orange and grapefruit segments around the leaves. Sprinkle the feta and walnuts on top, then garnish with a few fava flowers and a pinch of orange zest on each plate.
