Winter Grapefruit Salad
Makes 4 servings
Too many Christmas cookies this year because you don’t have the family to eat them all? Need a little balance post-Christmas? Try out this simple salad as a side or an appetizer for a luxurious dinner. Grapefruit are actually Winter fruits (October – June), so they taste the sweetest and are packed full of Vitamin C and A and other immune-boosting antioxidants, which is great for the Winter months when we’re indoors more often and having large gatherings.
1 tablespoon champagne vinegar
½ teaspoon Dijon mustard
½ teaspoon raw honey
¼ teaspoon sea salt
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
3 ounces baby arugula
2 grapefruit, segmented
1/3 cup toasted walnuts
¼ cup shaved Ricotta Salata or similar cheese
In a small bowl, whisk together champagne vinegar, Dijon and honey, salt and pepper until combined. While whisking, drizzle olive oil until combined. Set aside.
In a large bowl toss together arugula and drizzle with the desired amount of the champagne vinaigrette. Divide arugula among 4 plates. Top with grapefruit, walnuts, and Ricotta Salata. Serve immediately.
