Drizzle this zesty, citrusy dressing over mixed gourmet greens topped with goat cheese and roasted corn. You can squeeze your own grapefruit juice or look for fresh grapefruit juice in the produce section of the grocery store.
1 teaspoon olive oil
1/2 cup chopped shallots
2 cups fresh grapefruit juice (about 3 grapefruits)
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
2 teaspoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil
How to Make It
Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add shallots; cook 5 minutes or until golden brown. Stir in juice. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, and cook until reduced to 1 cup (about 6 minutes). Remove from heat; cool.
Place the grapefruit juice mixture, cilantro, sugar, and pepper in a blender; process until smooth. With blender on, slowly add 2 tablespoons oil; process until smooth.
This was so bitter tasting we had to add lots of extra sugar to make it barely edible. We couldn't tell what part of the recipe was a fail. Too much cilantro? Olive oil contributes an incompatible flavor? This was so bad I'll just walk away, without trying to tweak it. And by the way, it required 4 large grapefruits to get the two cups.
