1/2 cup shelled pistachios 
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar 
salt and freshly ground pepper to taste 
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard 
3 tablespoons olive oil 
1 head Boston lettuce (or another leafy green lettuce, such as green leaf or red leaf) 
1 large or 2 small blood oranges, peel removed and slices cut out without the pith (membrane that separates the slices) 
3 strips bacon, cooked to crispy 
2-3 small radishes, quartered to wedges

In a small bowl, combine the red wine vinegar, mustard, and a couple of pinches of salt and pepper. Drizzle in the olive oil while whisking rapidly until mixture is emulsified. Gently tear lettuce into bite-sized pieces. Toss with the dressing and remaining ingredients. Serve immediately.
