Citrus Salad with Mint and Tarragon Vinaigrette

Hello dear citrus lovers out there.  I know we could debate the best way to cut an orange, but I'll just make this easy for you: have you ever tried this?

Chop off north and south poles so it stands up nicely.  Then slice off the outer skin and pith, starting at the top and working to the bottom, leaving as much fruit on as possible.  Now with your perfectly sitting ball of juice, turn it on it's side and slice through the center and out come little sunshines, perfect flowers, citrus gems!  About 5-6 per fruit.

Salad with Citrus Almond Butter Dressing

A salad should never be "just" a salad.  It deserves a little more love than that.  

I spotted a dressing online and before I could even try it, my girlfriend made it FOR us while we were visiting.  It was as good as I had hoped.  I've been varying a few ingredients, to make my own version.
