    Grapefruit Chicken Satay Salad

    This tossed salad borrows the basic flavors of Thai satay and turns them into a rich and satisfying entree salad.


    • 2 large pink or ruby-red grapefruits
    • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1/4-inch-thick strips
    • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
    • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
    • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
    • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
    • 1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1/4 cup smooth natural peanut butter
    • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
    • 1 teaspoon sugar
    • 1/4 teaspoon hot sauce, or to taste
    • 8 cups roughly chopped romaine lettuce (about 2 hearts)
    • 1 cups sliced radishes (about 8 radishes)


    Step 1
    With a sharp knife, remove the peel and white pith from grapefruits and discard. Cut the grapefruit segments from the surrounding membranes, letting them drop into a small bowl. Working over a large bowl, squeeze the remaining membranes to extract the juice. Set the segments and juice aside separately.
    Step 2
    Position rack in upper third of oven; preheat broiler. Line a broiler pan or baking sheet with foil.
    Step 3
    Toss chicken, dry mustard, garlic powder, cinnamon, coriander, ginger, pepper and salt in a large bowl until the chicken is well coated. Place on the prepared pan in a single layer.
    Step 4
    Broil the chicken until cooked through, about 5 minutes.
    Step 5
    Meanwhile, whisk peanut butter, soy sauce, sugar and hot sauce into the reserved grapefruit juice until smooth. Add the cooked chicken and lettuce; toss to combine. Serve the salad topped with radishes and the reserved grapefruit segments.
