In a medium bowl, whisk together the lemon juice/vinegar, olive oil, mustard, salt and pepper. Taste and adjust for seasoning.

In a large bowl or serving platter, toss the greens with all but 1 tablespoon of the dressing. Toss the apricots and almonds with the remaining tablespoon of dressing and scatter on top of the salad.

Crumble the goat cheese over top and serve with a drizzle of Meyer lemon olive oil and a shower of scallions.
