I just re-read Eat Like a FarmGirl: 3 Ingredient Plant Based Recipes and ended up making this salad twice today. It's a great book that focuses on simple pairings, and pairing veggies with veggies and veggies with fruit. Simple is delicious!

For this salad I made a bed of fresh raw spinach, topped with some grapefruit wedges I had cut out of the membranes, and then a little handful of sliced almonds.

For an easy dressing I squeezed the grapefruit (after cutting out the wedges) into a jar, added 1 tablespoon of oil, 1 teaspoon of maple syrup (my grapefruit was super sweet, you might need more if your grapefruit is tart), salt and pepper and shook it up.

Mouth watering!  I love grapefruit!  And it is so good in a simple salad. Have you ever had grapefruit and avocado together?  It is an amazing combination too.

Looks delicious. Adding avocado sounds great, too. And goat cheese. But then, everything is better with goat cheese.

Grapefuits in salads are delicious. I never thought of adding grapefruit juice to the dressing. I'll try that soon.

I normally agree! But I'm trying to really taste the vegetables, and they're yummy! (although totally hoping I'm going back to this place tonight that has an amazing beet salad with goat cheese, horeradish cream, frisee, and walnuts. Mind blowing!)

Yep, just used as the acid part of a vinaigrette! Tasty!
