Irish Smoked Salmon Salad

12 oz Irish smoked salmon
4 cups Mesclun salad (mixed field greens)
6 oz goat cheese, divided into fourths
1/2 loaf of cubed day, old French bread
1 each: lemon, lime, and orange, peeled and sectioned (reserve juices for dressing)
4 Tbsp reserved citrus juices
3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 Tbsp chopped fresh chives
Salt and pepper, to taste
Toast bread cubes at 350 degrees F for croutons.

In a small bowl, whisk together the citrus juices and olive oil; season with salt and pepper.

On chilled salad plates, arrange slices of the smoked salmon in a fan pattern. Toss the greens with the dressing until lightly coated and mound about a cup of the salad in the center of each plate.

Place the fruit sections on top. Arrange goat cheese and croutons around the plate.
