Arugula and Grapefruit Salad

Another recipe inspired by our farm visit, peppery arugula and sweet/sour grapefruit go perfect together in this simple recipe. The hardest part of this recipe is segmenting the grapefruit. To do this, just peel the grapefruit with a knife, cutting away the peel as well as the pith. Remove the individual segments by cutting between segments in a V shape towards the center of the fruit.


  • 1 bunch arugula, washed and dried (chop roughly if using
  • large leaves)
  • 1 grapefruit, cut into segments
  • 1 small handful thinly sliced onion
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • Chopped pecans or walnuts
  • Crumbled feta or blue cheese


In a small saucepan heat oil, vinegar and grapefruit over
medium high heat. Stir for a few minutes until grapefruit
has released some juice.

Season mixture with salt and pepper. Pour over arugula, tossing to coat. Garnish with nuts and cheese. Serve immediately.
