We had it for the first time mid July, when the temps were up and we wanted something light. To be honest, this was the first time I've had a salad with so much citrus in it, I was afraid it would be overpowering, but it was so light and refreshing, we ate it twice in the same week. I understand the convenience of pre-packaged but we used fresh grapefruit and pineapple. This will definitely be a regular summer staple for me and I can't wait to bring it to an event, I love to introduce unexpected food combinations to others.
What a nice, bright salad! The dressing is very good and simple to make.
For the dressing I used instead: 2 parts Blood Orange Olive Oil and 1 part Strawberry Balsamic Vinegar. I also added a bit of Feta Cheese like someone suggested. Have a Walnut allergy so used some pecans. I got so many compliments on this 4th of July.
Loved the salad. Very refreshing. I served it to my friends after a hot day of golf and they loved it. The dressing would go with any fresh salad. The best low cal option I've seen.
It is soooo good!!!
This salad was a treat for a Minnesotan in mid-February. My husband took creative license at the grocery store, so we made a few substitutions. Strawberries for grapefruit, almonds for walnuts, and spinach for mixed greens. I threw in some low-fat feta & avocado to make a complete lunch. I will definately be making this salad for my family & will serve at our beach picnics this summer.
Absolutely loved this salad. I would use fresh pineapple instead, the canned had an unusual flavor. I also used fresh grapefruit since I couldn't find canned. Great summer salad.
Absolutely divine for a light salad to complimenet a rich meal. The different fruits are wonderful. Don't go to heavy on the saldad dressing. It doesn't need much.
