• Salad on Sunday: Arugula, Fennel, Grapefruit and Crab

    by  • 6 Jun ’10 • Salad • 10 Comments


    Even in this much milder climate in which I live, I find my thoughts turning from soups to salads. My friend Christina Juarez sent me a salad version of last week’s soup that she was inspired to create—yum!

    Salad:
    8 cups lightly packed baby or tender arugula
    Fennel bulb, halved lengthwise and sliced crosswise as thinly as possible
    Ruby red grapefruit slices
    Avocado slices
    Crab meat

    Vinaigrette:
    ½ cup olive oil
    ¼ Fresh lime juice
    ¼ Ruby red grapefruit juice freshly squeezed
    Black pepper
    Salt

    To make salad: In a large bowl, gently combine arugula, fennel, grapefruit, avocado and vinaigrette. Toss gently and season with salt and pepper if desired. Top each salad with crab.

    To make vinaigrette:
    Whisk everything together and store in the refrigerator until ready to use.

      "Salad on Sunday"–perfect replacement for "Soup on Sunday"–I love all of your recipes; such a treat not to have to think. (Sometimes I adjust them just a tiny bit)
      Thanks so much and have a great week.
