Instructions Checklist
  • Make dressing: Combine apple cider vinegar, ginger, honey, mustard, salt, and pepper in a jar with a tight-fitting lid. Shake until honey dissolves and ingredients are well combined. Add oil and shake vigorously to mix well.

  • Peel oranges and slice thinly crosswise. Just before serving, toss arugula with 3 tbsp. vinaigrette in a bowl until leaves are coated evenly. Add butter lettuce, romaine, and orange segments and toss gently. Scatter with shaved cheese.

  • Make ahead: Dressing, up to 2 weeks ahead, chilled; other ingredients can be prepped several hours ahead and chilled separately.
