Servings: 8

Ingredients

2 grapefruit

1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

2 tablespoons minced scallions

1 tablespoon white-wine vinegar

1/4 each teaspoon salt & freshly ground pepper

8 cups torn butter lettuce

6 cups spring mix

1 large apple, thinly sliced

1/3 cup dried cranberries

1/3 cup toasted nuts

Directions

Remove the peel and white pith from the grapefruits with a sharp knife. Working over a bowl, cut the segments from their surrounding membranes. Cut the segments in half on a cutting board and transfer them to a large salad bowl.

To make the dressing, squeeze the grapefruit peel and membranes over the original bowl to extract 1/4 cup grapefruit juice. Whisk oil, scallions, vinegar, salt and pepper into the bowl with the grapefruit juice.

Add the greens and apple slices to the salad bowl with the grapefruit segments. Just before serving, toss the salad with the dressing until well coated. Sprinkle the cranberries and toasted nuts on top.
