2 Red or Pink grapefruit, peeled and sliced into circles
1/4 Cup Hazelnuts, chopped
1/4 Cup Feta Cheese, crumbled
1 Tbsp. Fresh rosemary, finely chopped
Pinch of flaky salt (Maldon is a favorite)
1 Tbsp. Red or pink grapefruit juice
2 Tbsp. Patricia and Paul Garlic Olive Oil
1 Tbsp. Patricia and Paul Balsamic Grapefruit Vinegar
2 Tbsp. Honey
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
2. Layer grapefruit slices on a platter, and drizzle with dressing. Sprinkle pistachios, feta cheese, and oregano over grapefruit, then season with the flaky salt. Enjoy!
NOTES: My grapefruit salad with feta and hazelnuts is easy to make and such a refreshing start to any meal. Pick up a couple of fresh pink or red grapefruits at your farmer’s market or local supermarket. I find they are sweeter than regular grapefruit.
I cut off both ends on each grapefruit, then turn them on to their cut side. Using a serrated knife, slice away the skin and white pith surrounding the fruit. Continue around the grapefruit until all the skin and pith is removed.
Turn the fruit on its side and slice into wheels. Arrange those on a platter slightly overlapping. I simply top with the crumbled feta, chopped hazelnuts and finely chopped rosemary. Note that you should use fresh rosemary and pull the leaves off the stem. Then, chop them very fine. Rosemary is a tough herb so you want to finely chop it so it is easy on the tongue.
In this recipe, you could substitute an herb you like such as oregano, basil or even mint. The same goes for the nuts. Use your favorite. Some options would include pistachios, pine nuts, pecans or walnuts.
In my dressing, I am using flavored artisanal vinegar and olive oil. I purchase them at Patricia and Paul and just love them. However, if you don’t have grapefruit balsamic vinegar, use plain white balsamic vinegar. If you don’t have garlic flavored olive oil, pour two tablespoons of regular olive oil into a small dish and add a smashed garlic clove. Let that sit 20 minutes. Remove the garlic clove before making your dressing.
Make sure you taste the dressing after you make it and adjust the seasoning to your liking. Add more salt and/or pepper or more honey if you like it a little sweeter.
I just drizzle this on the grapefruit right before serving. Finish with a pinch of flaky salt and you’ve got a great starter salad. If you like this salad, try some of my other fruit salads.
