INGREDIENTS

Vinaigrette
2 tablespoons Champagne vinegar
2 teaspoons finely minced shallot
Salt to taste
2 tablespoons lemon juice
⅓ cup extra virgin olive oil, or to taste

Salad
5 cups baby arugula or watercress
2 medium pink grapefruit such as Rio Star,or two medium blood oranges, segmented
1 medium watermelon radish, sliced crosswise as thinly as possible
¼ pound smoked trout (about one fillet), shredded into small chunks
Freshly ground black pepper

PREPARATION

For the vinaigrette

  1. Place the shallot, champagne vinegar and a pinch of salt together in a small bowl and let macerate for at least 10 minutes and up to one hour to mellow the flavor of the shallot.

  2. Add the remaining ingredients, whisking to combine.


To serve

  1. When ready to serve, toss the arugula, citrus segments, and radish with the vinaigrette, reserving just enough dressing to drizzle over the finished salad.

  2. Arrange mound of arugula on each of four chilled salad plates, adding several citrus segments and slices of radish. Top with some of the smoked trout. Drizzle with remaining vinaigrette and season with a twist of freshly ground black pepper. Serve immediately.
