Lettuce with Pistachios and Orange dressing

A three step salad to celebrate the summer through taste and colour. Refreshing, original and slightly French. They love to put crème fraiche in everything. ;)

2 butter lettuce, cored; leaves torn into large pieces
1⁄2 cup shelled pistachios, lightly toasted and roughly chopped
2 navel oranges, peel and pith removed and flesh segmented, juice reserved
1⁄2 cup creme fraiche
1⁄4 cup finely chopped chives
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

1.) Combine lettuce, pistachios, and orange segments in a bowl.
2.) Whisk reserved orange juice with creme fraiche, 3 tbsp. chives, salt, and pepper; pour over salad and toss to combine.
3.) Garnish with remaining chives.
