Note, these instructions are written assuming the standard serving size, since you have modified the number of servings, these steps may need to be modified for best results
- Start by making a batch of greek salad dressing, or you can use a balsamic type dressing if it is more readily available.
- Then, thinly slice your orange, grapefruit, radishes, and red onion. If you are just making one salad you definitely won't need the entire grapefruit, orange or quarter of red onion, but should be able to get 2-3 salads if you used them all. You\'ll also want to chop up your pistachios into smaller pieces.
- Get to putting your salad together. Put a bunch of arugula down on a plate, and then start layering things. I like to do the grapefruit next, then add the oranges on top of the grapefruit.
- Put some red onion slices on top and maybe a few sprinkled around, and then add the radishes throughout.
- Crumble the goat cheese all over (if you like that sort of thing), and sprinkle your almond slivers.
- Finally, top with your dressing. Grind some salt and pepper right on top, and call it good.
- Eat up! Enjoy this light and crisp summer citrus salad!
