Blood Orange Vinaigrette

Juice of two blood oranges (yields at least 1/2 cup)

Washed, dried and torn leaves of arugula, watercress, mizuna or greens of your choice

 Pour juice into a small mixing bowl. Add vinegar and mix with a whisk. Add salt; taste along the way. Mixture should be somewhat salty. With one hand, gradually pour in the olive oil to the juice-vinegar mixture, while whisking with the other hand. Add orange segments and nuts, if desired. Toss with salad and serve immediately.
