Description

The flavors of the arugula and citrus will go nicely with a charcuterie tray featuring almonds, cheese and salty pancetta.

Ingredients

1/4 cup
red wine vinegar
2 teaspoons
sugar
1/2 cup
onion, red (slivered)
2 tablespoons
lemon juice
3 tablespoons
olive oil, extra virgin
1 tablespoon
honey
1/2 teaspoon
salt
4 cups
arugula
1
orange, cara cara (peeled and sliced in rounds)
2
blood orange (peeled and sliced in rounds)
1
orange, navel (peeled and sliced in rounds)
1/4 cup
spearmint (chopped)
2 ounces
ricotta salata (thinly sliced )
1/4 cup
pecans (chopped)

Instructions

In a medium bowl, combine the red wine vinegar and sugar and stir. Add the red onions and toss to mix. Let stand to pickle a little while you prep the salad.

In a cup, whisk the lemon juice, olive oil, honey and salt, and reserve.

On a platter, spread the arugula, then arrange the orange slices in layers. Remove the onions from the marinade and scatter them over the oranges. Sprinkle with spearmint, ricotta salata and pecans, then drizzle with the dressing. Serve immediately.
