Many people eat a salad as a first course and then forget about it. Salads are not seen as exciting and are certainly not memorable. Of course, those people have never tasted this Grapefruit Salad with Champagne Vinaigrette. It bursts with flavor and texture and deserves its own place at the table.
Salads do not have to be boring. They can be nutritious and delicious. This beautiful grapefruit salad is a star in its own right. It will hold its own against any meal.
It also packs its own nutritional punch. Arugula is nutrient dense and adds a peppery flavor. Radicchio, also known as Italian chicory, adds fiber and a delightful crunch. Grapefruit is a terrific source of vitamins and fiber.
The Champagne Vinaigrette brings this salad together with sweetness and a touch of spice. I love this salad as a meal all by itself. The different textures and the bright, tangy grapefruit, crunchy walnuts and creamy blue cheese combine with the vinaigrette make for a filling and delicious salad.
Quick and easy to pull together, this grapefruit salad will be a new favorite. Serve it as a meal with a crunchy loaf of bread or as the starter to a beautiful meal.
