Step 1

Make Vinaigrette:
Pour vinegar into a small bowl. Whisk in oil and season with lemon juice and salt to taste.

Supreme Oranges:
Use a knife to trim top and bottom from fruit. Set fruit on end and, slicing from top to bottom following curve of fruit, cut away peel and pith. Release sections one at a time by inserting blade between membrane and flesh on either side and then removing loosened flesh.

In a large bowl, combine orange supremes, mint, pistachios, pomegranate seeds, avocado and radicchio. Rewhisk vinaigrette and toss in just enough to coat leaves. Season with salt.

Smear goat cheese across a serving platter or individual plates. Drizzle cheese with olive oil and season with salt. Arrange salad over cheese and garnish with extra torn mint.
