This is not just a salad, it is a crunchy, juicy, sweet, salty, tart, buttery and nutty potluck dazzler.

Note: When sectioning citrus, cut off a slice from both ends of the fruit.
Cut away the peel and the white part of the rind, working from top to bottom. Tip the fruit to its side and cut into the center between one section and the membrane; then cut along the other side of the section next to the membrane to free the section.
