Grapefruit Salad

Published by:

This salad is perfect for breakfast on a hot morning, a side dish for lunch or dinner, a picnic, a barbecue … It pairs well with fish, chicken, steak, or burgers. The recipe below is just a starting point. You can use any type of melon, play around with the ratio of melon to grapefruit and oranges and use an endless array of garnishes. If you don’t like grapefruit you can use pineapple or grapes instead.

Because this salad keeps so well I like to make up a big bowl of it.

Ingredients

1/2 honeydew melon, peeled and cut into ½” inch cubes

4 pink grapefruit, peeled and segmented

8 oranges, peeled and segmented

Instructions

Gently toss all ingredients together. Serve immediately or the next day.

While this salad is certainly delish served as is I like to vary it with different garnishes such as:

thinly sliced mint leaves

toasted seeds – pumpkin, sunflower, pine nuts, sesame seeds

crumbled feta cheese

crumbled cotija cheese

lemon, lime or orange zest

drizzle with melted or thinned mint jelly

drizzle with melted or thinned jalapeno jelly

thinly sliced red onion
