Citrus Salad With Manuka Honey, Vanilla + Pistachio

Are you looking to enjoy a citrusy treat for your breakfast? Do you want to learn a recipe for a salad that you can show off the next time you have company over to have dinner at your home? 

Either way, we’ve got just the thing for you. 

This Citrus Salad we’re about to show you how to make is great on its own. However, you can also pair or top it with something else. Like, for example, your favorite fruit puree, or you can even put natural organic yogurt on top of it. 

So, without further ado, let’s get started:

What Ingredients Do You Need?

  • 2 x oranges
  • 2 x mandarins
  • 2 x blood oranges
  • 1 x lime
  • 1 x pink grapefruit
  • Whatever fresh herbs you can find to use as a garnish. We recommend mind or thyme.
  • 1 x tablespoon of Manuka Honey
  • 1/2 x teaspoon vanilla bean paste or extract
  • 1 oz (30 grams or 1/4 cup) of chopped pistachio nuts

How To Prepare

Step 1: Peel all five of the citrus fruits. We prefer to remove the pith or that visible white part of the citrus fruits. Although, if you want, you can keep them on and add them to the mixture. It’s all up to you. 

Step 2: Thinly slice all of the citrus fruits and arrange them according to your preferences on a serving plate. We suggest alternating them based on color for a better look. 

Step 3: In a separate bowl or container, combine the vanilla bean paste or extra with the manuka honey and drizzle on top of the citrus salad. 

Step 4: Garnish the salad with the fresh garden herbs and/or the chopped pistachio nuts. 

Step: Serve and enjoy!


  • Instead of using yogurt to top off the salad, you can blend coconut cream or milk with vanilla and mangoes in a blender until you get a yogurt-like texture for a more fruity and dairy-free alternative.
  • If you prefer nuts, you can try blending half a cup of raw cashew nuts with a cup of water and put in a few drops of vanilla extract. Blend the mixture until you get something similar to yogurt and enjoy. 
  • Coconut cream on its own is also a good alternative to yogurt. 
  • You can try adding a bit of ginger to the manuka honey before you mix it with the vanilla bean paste and drizzle it onto the salad. 
  • Don’t throw away the leftovers. You can still blend whatever’s left of the salad after eating it to create a smoothie. This is best paired with yogurt or whatever yogurt-alternative you prefer.
