Spicy Grapefruit & Spinach Salad


The spicy dressing of this recipe takes a simple grapefruit and spinach salad to a higher level. For a luncheon salad, you can add grilled shrimp or scallops. Recipe yields 8 servings.

Salad Ingredients

  • 3/4 pound fresh spinach, trimmed, washed and torn (approximately 16 cups for a large portion)
  • 1/2 medium jicama, peeled and cut into thin strips
  • 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 3 Texas Red grapefruits, sectioned

Spicy Grapefruit Dressing Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons toasted poppy seeds
  • 6 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoon virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon coarse-grain mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon honey


  1. For salad, mix spinach, jicama and onion. With a sharp knife, section grapefruit while working over a small bowl to catch the juice. Reserve juice for dressing. Cut the grapefruit segments and add to salad mixture. Toss and chill.
  2. For the dressing, combine all ingredients, except poppy seeds, in a blender and blend until creamy. Season with salt and coarse-ground black pepper.
  3. Drizzle dressing over salad mixture and toss. Arrange on salad plates and garnish with toasted poppy seeds.
