Ingredients

  • 2 grapefruits (Texas Ruby Red preferred), about 26 ounces total
  • 1½ cups strawberries, stemmed, halved
  • 2 tablespoons sherry vinegar
  • ½ tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon shallot, finely diced
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • ½ teaspoon poppy seeds

  2. Combine the grapefruit sections and strawberries in a bowl. Toss gently and reserve until needed.
  3. In a blender, combine the vinegar, sugar, shallot, reserved grapefruit juice, and salt. Process until smooth. (Or whisk together by hand.)
  4. Slowly drizzle the oil through the hole in the lid while the blender is running and process until the dressing has thickened. (Or whisk into dressing in a slow, steady stream.)

  7. Arrange spinach on chilled plates. Place the grapefruit sections and strawberries on top. Serve immediately.
