Mache Salad with Blood Oranges, Pistachios, and Pomegranate

Mache Salad with Blood Oranges, Pistachios, and Pomegranate
 
Using blood orange juice in the dressing means less oil is necessary, which lowers the fat in this dish. Mache, sometimes called lamb's lettuce, can be found in four-ounce packages in the produce section of many supermarkets.
