Total time 30 mins
Yield Serves 4
Reader Yvette Kaplan, of North Hollywood, California, created this delicious and brightly colored winter salad. The honey and olive oil in the dressing tame the bitterness of the dandelion greens, so feel free to drizzle on more if you'd like it milder.


  • 1 bunch (11 oz.) dandelion greens, ends trimmed, leaves torn
  • 1 large pink grapefruit, peeled and segmented; squeeze remaining membrane and save juice for dressing
  • 1/2 cup sliced red onion
  • 1/2 cup pomegranate seeds
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
