Mixed Citrus & Arugula Salad with Ricotta & Pumpkin Seeds

This salad makes the most of in-season citrus and creates a pretty-hued side. If you can’t find blood oranges, substitute more navel oranges. The salad won’t be quite as colorful, but it will still be tangy- sweet and delicious.

1. Cut a thin slice off stem end and bottom of each fruit. Standing each on 1 cut side, slice downward along edge to remove peel and pith, rotating and cutting to expose flesh. Cut each crosswise into ¼-inch-thick slices.

2. In a small bowl, stir ricotta with one- half of the honey. Scatter arugula on a serving platter. Arrange citrus over top and dollop with ricotta mixture; sprinkle with pomegranate and seeds. Drizzle with remaining honey and oil.

Make Ahead: Prep all ingredients ahead of time and store separately. Assemble just before serving.
