I've made this twice in as many days, even though it takes a while to cut the citrus away from the membranes. It is totally worth it. First time I used grapefruit, tangerines and pomelo. Second time just grapefruit and pomelo. The bitter citrus with arugula, chopped almonds and savory dressing are out of this world!

I serve this salad as part of our dinner this evening. It was absolutely delicious! I added a little more arugula and mint then suggested and it was just perfect. Such a nice way to use the wonderful blood oranges. I'll be making this one again.
