  • 1 medium blood orange

Instructions
Dressing

Salad
  1. Segment Citrus: Begin by slicing a little off of the top and bottom of the citrus fruit. Trim away the skin and the pith, by starting at the top of the fruit and slicing downward following the curve of the fruit. Once all of the skin and pith is removed you can either slice into rounds or segment. To segment: use a paring knife, slip the knife between one of the segments and the connective membrane, cut until you reach the middle of the fruit, scoop the segment out and continue until all segments are released from the connective membrane.

  2. Arrange escarole on a platter. Top with citrus, fennel, radish, and avocado slices. Drizzle with Meyer Lemon Vinaigrette and scatter the top with chopped chives.
