    1       md           Lettuce head, 6-8 oz (red
                         -oak leaf, leaf, or romaine)
    2       lg           Oranges
      1/4   c            Reduced-fat mayonnaise
    1       tb           Sherry or cider vinegar
    2       ts           Honey
    2       ts           Canned green peppercorns,
                         -drained and chopped
 
   Lengthwise, cut lettuce through core into quarters.
   Immerse in water and gently swish to remove dirt;
   shake gently to remove water. Wrap in towels, slip
   into plastic bags, and chill 30 minutes or up to a day.
   
   Grate enough orange peel to make 1/2 teaspoon. Cut
   remaining peel and white membrane off oranges. Over a
   bowl, cut between membranes to remove orange sections.
   Squeeze membrane over bowl. Drain off all the juice
   and measure; you need 3 tablespoons (save extra juice
   for another use).
   
   Whisk together the 3 tablespoons orange juice, orange
   peel, mayonnaise, vinegar, honey, and peppercorns. If
   made ahead, cover and chill fruit and dressing
   separately up to 4 hours.  On each of 4 salad or
   dinner plates, place 1 wedge of lettuce. Top with
   equal portions of fruit and dressing.
