Grapefruit and Baby Spinach Salad

side salad

I love delicious citrus! The grapefruit were just so sweet and delicious, they really made this salad. I also loved the jicama. It was sweeter than normal, but added that amazing crunch throughout. I have been obssesed with red onions in my salad these days, so that was no surprise, but as always deeelish! The dressing was sweet but still had that citrus and vinegar tang. All in all, amazing salad!

Grapefruit and Baby Spinach Salad

3 grapefruit, pink or red
3 garlic cloves minced
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon whole-grain mustard
1/2 teaspoon honey or agave
1/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, or to taste
3/4 pound baby spinach
1/2 jicama, small, peeled and cut into matchsticks
1/2 red onion, thinly sliced

    1. Remove skin and white pith from grapefruit. Work over a small bowl to catch the juice and cut the grapefruit segments from their surrounding membrane. Reserve the segments in the bowl. Measure 1/3 cup of the juice and set aside.
    2. In a Vitamix or blender, combine vinegar, olive oil, mustard, honey, garlic and reserved grapefruit juice. Blend until creamy. Season with salt and pepper.
    3. In a large salad bowl or seperate serving bowls combine spinach, jicama, onions, and grapefruit sections. Drizzle with the dressing and toss. Enjoy 🙂
