Yes please, I’d love a juicy slice of blood orange for breakfast! Especially ones that are topped with crushed pistachios and honey. Oh, and to even make it more drool-icious, a side spoonful of yogurt. Pass me the dish, already!

The biggest breakfast appetite killer for me is drinking orange juice right after brushing my teeth. Not only does it ruin the fresh minty taste in my mouth, it makes a sweet orange juice taste bitter! Once I get that taste in my mouth, I can never seem to get it out! Anyone else in the same boat?

So if you’re like me, make sure you brush your teeth well before having this Blood Orange Pistachio Dream, or save the toothbrush for afterwards! Don’t you dare ruin this breakfast with a long-lasting minty fresh taste.

  1. This is one of my very favorite salads – so simple, so delicious, so refreshing!

  2. This looks so good. I love the simpicity! But it still looks so sophisticated. Yum!

    • It’s definitely a very simple dish to make and so delicious! I can’t help but be amazed at the colors of blood oranges every time I cut one open.

  3. Jonathan says:

    A pinch might not be strong enough. Need a bucket of ice water to make sure!

  4. This looks absolutely delicious! It would be the most perfect breakfast, I love a bit of citrus in the morning to wake you up. I’ve just eaten my overnight oats at my desk at work and this has made me extremely jealous!

    • Citrus in the morning is so refreshing! Your overnight oats at the desk sounds delicious though. Maybe you can try to add on a bit of citrus next time :)
