Peel and segment oranges. Cut in half crosswise. Place in a bowl with celery, carrots and onion. Mix well.
Mash goat cheese in a bowl with the orange juice. Stir in oil, vinegar and lemon juice. Add salt and pepper to taste. Spoon dressing over fruit and vegetables; mix gently.
To serve, place one leaf of each lettuce variety on each serving plate. Top with salad. Garnish with nuts.
Buy nuts in small quantities and use them as soon as possible. If you have to store them, keep them in an airtight container in the refrigerator or freezer. The oil in nuts quickly turns rancid, particularly in a hot atmosphere.
