So flavorful and so good and it also has such a nice color to it! Blood orange salad has officially become my second favorite along with the maroccan carrot salad.

Kamilah Dunwell

Although there is so many ingredients I still had to add some salt and pepper to the mix as there was a bit of blandness.

Micah Gopez

Amazingly simple and tasty, so easy to prepare, really happy with the end result of this burrata and pesto salad.

Can't say I'm a giant fan of the pesto with oranges but its worth making again just for the kids since they liked it :)

Angelique Lien

Thank you so much - This recipe is perfection, wouldn't change anything about it.

Dayana Feygin

Me and my husband made the salad and it seemed like it was missing something. Swapped the cheese out for mozzarella and added tomatoes.

Susanna Kulach

This is amazing!! Could not ask for a better salad than this, it was so flavourful.

Kalani Kechichian

I made this to bring to work the next day for lunch because its so affordable and easy !

Annelise Rolloff

Too sour for me but atleast my husband liked it.

Wren Soscia

I skipped the basil and lemon since its already very sour cause of the blood orange, wonderful recipe nonetheless.

Evalyn Ferge

Great recipe, thanks so much for sharing going to be making this once every week.

Ayana Sadkowski

Maybe I'd make this more often if it was a bit more filling but it's not, it freaking delicious thouhg!

Cara Plescia

Not sure what to say about this, it was really good but to me i think there shouldve been a little less pine nuts, other than that it was perfect.

Carleigh Gr

The coloration of the orange is super pretty in this dish with all the other ingriedents, it really looks as good as it taste.


So delicious & colorful!!
