Lots of crunch with a zesty, gingery vinaigrette. Simply delicious!

As you know, I love the flavor and tang of Citrus Fruits!

This simple composed salad takes just minutes to prepare.

Start by whisking the Ginger-Grapefruit Vinaigrette – I like using Red Ruby Grapefruit Juice for its punch of crimson color.
Add all ingredients except oil; drizzle in oil slowly until emulsified.

An easy way to get all the juice from a Grapefruit:

Add 1/2 large grapefruit in a ceramic or glass bowl. Microwave for one minute. When cool enough to handle, squeeze the softened half grapefruit
over a bowl with a fine sieve. I like to add some pulp.

Toss with salad ingredients adding grapefruit segments on top.

Enjoy!

Ingredients

For the Vinaigrette

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh ginger grated fine
  • 1 teaspoon fresh garlic peeled, grated fine or minced
  • 2 tablespoons red ruby fresh grapefruit juice with some pulp
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt I use Himalayan pink
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure cane sugar
  • 1/3 cup neutral oil such as expeller pressed safflower oil

For the Salad:

  • 8 whole grapefruit segments* red ruby
  • 2 1/2 cups arugula leaves
  • 2 1/2 cups romaine lettuce thinly cut
  • 1/4 cup radicchio thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup purple sprouts I used Rainbow Microgreen Mix 
  • 1 tablespoon fresh mint leaves optional

Instructions

  • Make the grapefruit "supremes" segments (see below.)

Make the Ginger-Grapefruit Vinaigrette:

  • In a 2 cup glass bowl add ginger, garlic, grapefruit juice (with some pulp), vinegar, sea salt and sugar. Mix well with a wire whisk. Let stand 5 minutes.
    Add the oil to a measuring cup - Drizzle into the bowl SLOWLY to emulsify.
    Store in a clean glass container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

Prepare the Salad:

  • To a large or individual bowls add the arugula, romaine, sprouts and mint (if using.) Top with grapefruit segments - whole or cut in half.
    Drizzle the Vinaigrette over and serve!
    If using over Pistachio-Crusted Branzino - add the salad on top just before serving.

Notes

To Supreme a Grapefruit:
 Hold a large red ruby grapefruit and remove the peel with a small sharp knife or serrated knife. Now remove all the white pith, exposed the fruit. Cut on each side of the dividing membrane to release a segment - add to a plate. Continue until you have all the segments (an average grapefruit will have about 11 segments.) Take the leftover membranes and squeeze over a bowl - can use this juice in the recipe.)
