I really loved all the flavors in this salad, it was fresh and perfect for a lunch side dish for two, or maybe a lunch serving one. It covers pretty much every salad criteria, too--peppery arugula, crunchy walnuts, tangy and creamy goat cheese, sweet and bright oranges, and a perfectly balanced vinaigrette. What more can I say?!

2. Add the arugula to the bowl with the dressing and mix to coat evenly.
3. Toss in the orange segments, walnuts, and goat cheese.
