Grapefruit and Shrimp Salad recipe

Wow, does this salad taste like summer. Itís got fruits, veggies, lean protein, and a fabulous light vinaigrette. Perfect for lunch or a light dinner out on the patio under the sun.


1 pound medium shrimp, shelled
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon honey
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon soy sauce
½ teaspoon hot chile oil
3 tablespoons vegetable stock or water
4 cups fresh spinach leaves, torn into bite-size pieces
2 small pink grapefruit, peeled and sectioned
4 scallions, thinly sliced


  1. Bring large pot of salted water to a boil. Add shrimp and cook until pink, 2 to 3 minutes. Drain and allow to cool.

  2. In a small bowl, make the dressing by whisking together the sesame oil, honey, balsamic vinegar, soy sauce, chile oil, and stock.

  3. Arrange spinach leaves on a serving platter; sprinkle with a few tablespoons of dressing.

  4. Position the grapefruit sections and cooked shrimp over spinach and drizzle with the remaining dressing. Garnish with scallions.

Choose a white wine thatís dry but very crispy for this dish; it will bring out the natural fruitiness of the grapefruit without overpowering the delicate flavor of the shrimp. Choose Viognier, Muscadet, or a dry sparkling wine.
