Salad w/ Grapefruit & Blue Cheese

My friend Michelle sends out an email every Sunday with her weekly meal plan. I recently got on her distribution list and have learned of some new recipes I'm eager to try. Last week she mentioned a salad with grapefruit which caught my eye since I've been getting such juicy grapefruits at the grocery store lately. I used blue cheese per her suggestion and a quick vinaigrette I learned from my friend Tara. Loved it.

Salad w/ Grapefruit & Blue Cheese

Bibb or Butter lettuce
Crumbled Blue Cheese (preferably a great blue from the Estrella Family Creamery or something of that caliber)


1 t maple syrup
2 T white balsamic vinegar
2 T olive oil
pinch of salt & pepper

Put dressing ingredients in a small jar and shake vigorously to combine.

Slice the peel off the grapefruits, making sure to remove all the white pith. Cut grapefruit segments free from membranes.

Toss everything together and enjoy!
