Spinach Grapefruit Salad Recipe

The dark green leaves are in season right now – spinach is sweet and versatile. In this refreshing, spring spinach salad you’ll get some protein, healthy plant-based fats, and a bunch of fiber! Makes 4 servings!

Note: To remove grapefruit segments: Slice off each end. Place the grapefruit on end and cut the rind and pith off the grapefruit. Hold the peeled grapefruit over a bowl and carefully cut out the segments from the membrane, set aside. After all the segments are removed, squeeze the remaining membrane and peel to remove all the juice. Reserve two tablespoons of juice.
