Citrus Scallop Salad

With scallops, pears and citrus fruits, this deliciously different salad is an outstanding first course. It also makes a great luncheon salad.—Sarah Geary, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

    YUMM - I made my own balsamic vinaigrette from a Food Network recipe. Rather stronger than Kraft is, so could have done with less, but still really good. My 19 year old daughter raved and advised me that I have to add this recipe to her "leaving home cookbook".

    So good! Would be great with chicken or shrimp - or no meat at all!

    Citrus salad is just what it says, orange, grapefruit, and mandarin orange segments in a light syrup
