Grapefruit Spinach Salad Recipe

“My mother-in-law prepared this for us on a recent visit,” relates Lee Ann Odell of Boulder, Colorado. The fresh-tasting salad of spinach and grapefruit is nicely dressed with a sweet honey mixture. “The recipe is so easy to put together, and we never have any leftovers,” Lee Ann confirms.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 15 min. YIELD:8 servings


  • 1 medium pink grapefruit
  • 1 package (10 ounces) fresh spinach, torn
  • 2 tablespoons chopped green onion
  • 2 teaspoons cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons prepared mustard


  • 1. Cut grapefruit in half; with a sharp knife, cut around each section to loosen fruit, reserving juice. In a salad bowl, toss the spinach, onion and grapefruit sections. In a jar with a tight-fitting lid, combine the vinegar, oil, honey, mustard and reserved grapefruit juice; shake well. Drizzle over salad and toss to coat. Serve immediately. Yield: 8 servings.

"This is wonderful! I halve the dressing & keep it separate since we have picky kids, but even they eat the salad, too. Very diabetic-friendly, too!"
