To make candied pistachios stir 3 tablespoons sugar, 1 tablespoon water, and a pinch of salt in a bowl. Add ½ cup shelled pistachios and stir to coat. Spread on a baking sheet and bake 8 minutes till nuts are crispy.


Mix together all dressing ingredients. It should yield about 1 cup of dressing.

To Serve

This salad looks great on a wide plate with the salad layered on the bottom, pomegranate arils and pistachios sprinkled on top and the blood orange slices placed before serving. Drizzle the dressing in a zig zag across the dish.

Tip: You can also do this with individual plates of salad on a smaller scale.
