This salad is a refreshing mix of sweet and tart. It comes together in just 20 minutes and is super flavorful and colorful, perfect to scale up and serve at any dinner party, picnic, or potluck. It features mixed greens, grapefruit, avocado, endive, red onion, and goat cheese that's dressed with an olive oil, garlic, grapefruit juice, Dijon mustard, and soy sauce mixture—a savory yet sweet dressing with a touch of umami thanks to the soy sauce. This salad is also very versatile: When grapefruits are not in season, try blood oranges instead. Swap out the goat cheese for feta, or use peppery arugula instead of the mesclun.
