Celery and Grapefruit Salad

I am thrilled to get grapefruit, cutting celery, and green onions in our CSA shares. The following salad is a match made in heaven! You can easily pull the tougher strings out of the celery, or slice very thin to avoid fibrous bites. The tender little light green 1-3″ shoots that sprout from the base of the head are tasty, you can throw them whole into any salad.


  • ½ bunch of cutting celery stalks
  • 1 grapefruit
  • 2 green onions
  • Citrus dressing made with grapefruit or lemon juice
  • Sunflower seeds, to garnish (optional)
  • Parmesan cheese, shaved, to garnish


Chop the large stalks of the celery into thin slivers. Peel and supreme the grapefruit sections, then cut them in half horizontally.  Finely slice the onions, including the green tops. Arrange the salad elements on serving plates and dress with the prepared citrus dressing.  Top with sunflower seeds (optional) and shaved Parmesan cheese (for a vegan version this can be optional but it balances out the flavors. I’m not vegan, but maybe substitute some nutritional yeast.
