A refreshing change from lettuce and tomato. Consider using scallions or a red onion instead of a sweet Vidalia.

Ingredients

arugula

5 oz, about 8 cups loosely packed

grapefruit(s)

2 medium, pink, segmented, 2 tablespoons of juice reserved*

uncooked vidalia onion(s)

½ small, thinly sliced

olive oil

1 Tbsp

balsamic vinegar

1 Tbsp

honey

1 tsp

table salt

1 tsp

black pepper

¼ tsp, freshly ground

parmesan cheese

1 oz, thinly shaved (high-quality Parmesan recommended)

Instructions

  1. Place arugula in a large salad bowl; top with grapefruit and onion.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together oil, vinegar, honey, salt, pepper and reserved grapefruit juice.
  3. When ready to serve, gently toss salad with dressing; sprinkle with cheese. Yields about 2 cups per serving.

Notes

*To segment grapefruits, peel each grapefruit, making sure to remove white pith. Slice into each grapefruit section with a v-shape cut to remove the citrus from the center membranes, making sure you’re working over the bowl to catch the juice. When you finish removing the sections from each piece of citrus, squeeze the center membranes over the bowl to the release the rest of the juices.
