A bolt of citrus, a touch of sweet fruit and crunchy almonds doll up mesclun mix.

Mark Boughton/styling: Teresa Blackburn

When choosing grapefruit, we like to buy pink or red varieties, which contain beta-carotene, an antioxidant that may reduce the risk of some cancers. When buying any citrus fruits, pick the ones that are heavy for their size, a sign of juiciness.


7 cups mesclun or spring mix
2 pink grapefruits, peeled and sectioned, juice reserved
1 cup seedless red grape halves
3 tablespoons oil
1 tablespoon honey
1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons toasted slivered almonds


  1. Combine mesclun, grapefruit sections and grapes in a large bowl.
  2. Whisk 4 tablespoons reserved grapefruit juice, oil, honey, salt and pepper in a small bowl.
  3. Pour over salad and toss gently. Spoon onto individual serving plates and sprinkle with almonds.
