Spinach and Pink Grapefruit Salad

Fiona Haynes
This is a tangy and refreshing side salad or appetizer that would be a perfect beginning to a spring or summer lunch. Enjoy with your favorite low-fat or fat-free citrus or raspberry vinaigrette dressing.

Ingredients:

  • 6 cups baby spinach leaves
  • 1 small pink grapefruit, peeled, pith removed, segmented, and sliced
  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/2 cup fresh raspberries
  • 2 tbsp walnut pieces, chopped

Preparation:

Rinse, drain and dry baby spinach leaves; arrange on 4 salad plates. Arrange grapefruit pieces on top, followed by onion slivers and mushroom slices. Scatter raspberries and walnut pieces on top.

Drizzle with 2 tablespoons of your favorite low fat or fat free citrus or raspberry vinaigrette. Or make your own dressing using 1 part good-quality olive oil to three parts orange, lemon or grapefruit juice. Place in a small screw-top jar and shake vigorously.

Serves 4 as an appetizer.
