Citrus Salad with Chili-Citrus Vinaigrette & Micro Cilantro

This citrus-kissed salad is smoky, just-slightly-spicy and an excellent accompaniment to a wedge of chorizo frittata!

Ingredients:
2 Cara Cara oranges
2 blood oranges
4 cups arugula
Farm & Larder chili-citrus vinaigrette
½ micro cilantro
Fresh ground pepper, to taste

Method:
1. Spread the arugula greens out on a large, round serving platter to make a bed.

2. Using a sharp paring knife, cut the tops and bottoms off the oranges. Stand oranges up and slice to remove the peel and membrane. Then, slice oranges crosswise into thin wheels.

3. Scatter the orange slices over the greens. Drizzle several tablespoons of the vinaigrette over the salad and toss lightly to coat. Top salad with the micro cilantro and a dash of fresh ground pepper, if desired.
