Grapefruit Vinaigrette

Grapefruit VinagretteWhen I was perusing my blog, I noticed there was an absence of homemade salad dressings.  I make my own on occasion but hadn’t shared any recipes.

During winter, citrus fruits are the stars of the fruit world.  They are refreshing.  The vitamin C in citrus fruits are great for you.

So I decided to use the grapefruit I had at my house to make a vinaigrette.  The result was pure deliciousness.

A hint about juicing fresh citrus fruits:  place the fruit in the microwave for 10 seconds.  This causes the fruit to release their juices.

I used the grapefruit vinaigrette on top of a simple salad of spinach, kale, goat cheese, and slivered almonds.  Yum!
