Grapefruit juice is the base for the tangy vinaigrette on this salad studded with grapefruit segments and dried cranberries. It serves 12 as a starter or about 6 if you’d like a large portion per person.

Prep: 25 minutes | Total Time: 25 minutes
  • red grapefruit
  • 1/4 cup
    extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons
    scallions, minced
  • 1 tablespoon
    white-wine vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon
  • 8 cups
    butter lettuce, torn
  • 6 cups
    baby spinach
  • 1 14-ounce can
    hearts of palm, drained and cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1/3 cup
    dried cranberries
  • 1/3 cup
    toasted pine nuts
  • 1/4 teaspoon
    freshly ground pepper
  1. Remove the skin and white pith from grapefruit with a sharp knife. Working over a bowl, cut the segments from their surrounding membranes. Cut the segments in half on a cutting board and transfer to a large salad bowl. Squeeze the grapefruit peel and membranes over the original bowl to extract 1/4 cup grapefruit juice.
  2. Whisk oil, scallions, vinegar, salt and pepper into the bowl with the grapefruit juice.
  3. Add lettuce, spinach and hearts of palm to the salad bowl with the grapefruit segments. Just before serving, toss the salad with the dressing until well coated. Sprinkle cranberries and pine nuts on top.
