Instructions Checklist
  • Using a sharp knife, peel the tangerines, removing all of the bitter white pith. Working over a small bowl, cut in between the membranes to release the sections. Squeeze the juice from the membranes into the bowl and discard the membranes. Transfer the tangerine sections to a large bowl, reserving 1/4 cup of the tangerine juice.

  • In a small bowl, whisk the 1/4 cup of tangerine juice with the sherry vinegar, Dijon mustard and olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

  • Add the arugula, onion and pistachios to the bowl with the tangerine sections and toss. Using a vegetable peeler, shave the ricotta salata over the top. Season the salad with salt and pepper and toss with 1/3 cup of the dressing. Serve, passing the remaining dressing at the table.
