Spinach Grapefruit Salad Recipe

Spinach Grapefruit Salad Recipe

A sunshiny splash of citrus adds zest to this company-special spinach salad dressed up with dried cherries. To cut prep time to almost nothing (or when grapefruit is out of season), our Test Kitchen suggests using a jar of grapefruit segments found in your grocery produce section.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 15 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 2 large pink grapefruit
  • 1 package (10 ounces) fresh spinach, torn
  • 1 cup sliced celery
  • 1/2 cup dried cherries
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 5 teaspoons red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • Dash pepper


  • 1. Cut each grapefruit in half horizontally. With a sharp knife, cut around each section to loosen fruit; remove fruit segments and set aside. Squeeze grapefruit halves, reserving 1 tablespoon juice. In a large salad bowl, combine the spinach, celery, cherries and grapefruit segments.
  • 2. In a jar with a tight-fitting lid, combine the remaining ingredients and reserved juice; shake well. Drizzle over salad and toss to coat. Yield: 6 servings.

"I used craisins because I was out of dried cherries, and grapefruit that comes in individual containers. The salad was a big hit."
