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
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
