    Very tasty. Instead of a fresh grapefruit, I would used grapefruit than comes in a jar. It will save lots of time and will yield more juice. The receipe calls for 3 tbls of juice, but I barely got a couple. Also, at least double the dressing.

    Excellent and refreshing. Used fresh grapefruit just picked from the tree. Didn't have shallots, used chopped garlic ( from a jar ) instead . Would definitely make again!

    I love this salad, and it is easy to put together with frozen shrimp. However, fresh tarragon can be difficult to find, so I substitue cilantro!

    This was fantastic! Definitely going into the regular dinner salad repertoire. I used baby spinach rather than romaine, since that's what I had on hand, and cilantro rather than tarragon, since I was out. Can't wait to try it with the tarragon! I also tossed in a few finely sliced green onions, just because. I think strawberries would be a nice addition, also!

    This is really good. I thought the shallots were a little strong and instead used just a little fresh garlic. Also, I used grapeseed oil instead of olive oil which was also lighter. This is such a great salad and the only time consuming part is sectioning the grapefruit so I might also look into grapefruit in a jar when I'm in a hurry. I might also try cilantro but I do love the licorice taste from tarragon.

    I love this recipe, it's so easy to make and light and healthy. I wanted to make it again, because I had shrimp, avocado and romaine. However I did not have grapefruit, so I used canned mandarin oranges and for the dressing I used fresh lime juice instead of the grapefruit juice. Still came out delicious.

    Loved it! Used oranges as I can't have grapefruit. Definitely would make again!
