Grapefruit Salad

Grapefruit Salad

It seems that as soon as I went on high blood pressure medicine grapefruits came into vogue.

As you probably know I should stay away from grapefruit because it interacts with the medicine.

So, I make this recipe lovingly for my children and only have a small tasting to make sure everything is balanced.

One 5 ounce package of baby spinach

One 5 ounce package baby arugula

1/2 thin sliced red onion

One large bunch of steamed or roasted asparagus. Cut into one inch pieces.

3 pieces of sliced fennel

15 black olives

One cup of drained grapefruit slices

2 avocados cut into cubes

One cup of shaved  Romano cheese

Dressing

3 cloves garlic

1/2 teaspoon salt

3/4 cup of the grapefruit juice

3 tablespoon  balsamic vinegar

2 tablespoons balsamic glaze

One cup olive oil

1/2 teaspoon corse ground black pepper

Mix all the greens then layer everything else.

Take the salt and garlic and puree till it is a paste

Add the vinegar, glaze and grapefruit juice and mix  well

Add the oil and  pepper.

Mix till a dressing is blended together

I always underdress the salad and then serve extra dressing on the side.

I served this with  baked coconut cod
