This easy salad recipe takes 15 minutes to make from start to finish and is full of refreshing flavors and bright colors. The delicious, citrusy dressing consists of white balsamic vinegar, orange juice, canola oil, minced shallots, Dijon mustard, and ground coriander. Simply combine the watercress, grapefruit, papayas, and leeks, drizzle with the vinaigrette, and your beautiful, healthy salad is ready to go. If you've never worked with leeks before, they taste like delicate onions, and when very thinly sliced—as in this recipe—they can be eaten raw. Just be sure to use only the white and light green parts when you're prepping them.
