Citrus Walnut Salad with Fennel and Goat Cheese

This is a refreshing, light salad that we'll be making often. The brightness of the citrus, the deep licorice flavor of the fennel, and the creamy goat cheese are delicious.

1 medium orange--peeled and cut into segments
1/2 medium grapefruit--peeled and cut into segments
1/4 medium red onion--peeled, cut in half, and sliced into half rings
1/2 fennel bulb--cut in half and sliced into half rings
2 small radishes--thinly sliced
1/3 cup goat cheese--crumbled
1/3 head red butter romaine--chopped
handful of walnuts

For the balsamic vinaigrette
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
2 tbs olive oil
pinch of salt
pinch of pepper

Whisk the vinaigrette ingredients in a small bowl. Place butter lettuce on serving dish, top with the remaining ingredients, and drizzle with vinaigrette.
