This Salad is so fresh and light! I love to use citrus when in season and even in California the really good blood Oranges only are around for a short while! I also love goat cheese, I discovered this honey goat cheese and its now my go to for most times I make salads. It just adds a creamy, sweet bite and pairs perfect with the more peppery arugula. I also love a good heirloom tomato, the yellow are my favorite, and the baby red ones. You could also add walnuts, toasted to this, makes it a little more hardy, also a protein say a chicken breast or bacon and you have a full meal. Make this beautiful, colorful citrus salad, you will love it!
