2 medium oranges, peel cut away and flesh cut into segments
4 oz. soft, mild goat cheese, crumbled
4 oz. sliced bacon or pancetta, cooked until crisp and crumbled

In a large bowl, combine the baby spinach and diced beets, chickpeas, and orange segments. Add 1/4 cup of the dressing, season with salt and pepper, and toss well. Taste the greens, and adjust seasoning with more salt, pepper, or dressing as needed (you may not need all of the dressing).

Divide the salad between four salad plates. Scatter the crumbled goat cheese and crumbled bacon or pancetta evenly over all four salads.
