I made this salad tonight with a couple of substitutions. At my local fruit market they did not have Escarole or Shallots, so got Spring Mix (Which is my standby salad base anyways.) And had Green Onions at home. I dislike Grapefruit, so substituted Pummelo instead. (Which turned out to be as tart as Grapefruit.) Also could not find Kosher salt so used sea salt. I felt that Pomegranate wouldn't mesh well with this mix so I used Cranberry raisins. I didn't have time to toast the Pistachios, so I just chopped, and put them in raw. Alltogether, this recipe went together really good. Though I think next time I will use less grapefruit and maybe include a more sweeter fruit. My only complaint about this recipe is that there was no clear designation as to what ingredients were supposed to be the dressing. And what did (through) pepper mean? I just added pepper to the salad before serving it.
Very nice salad and I am not a pistachio fan.
