If you are having a holiday party then this is the perfect salad to serve. You can make it look like a wreath by placing a small bowl in the center of the larger, flatter bowl, and arranging the salad ingredients around the little center bowl. Pour the dressing in the little bowl and dress as you please. The vinaigrette awakens your taste buds with waves of citrusy goodness.
