As we get into the month of January we are always looking to eating a little healthier especially after eating so much delicious holiday food. We wanted to start with something simple. What is simpler than a salad? Well, what about Grapefruit Salad. This salad is simple and really easy to put together.
Grapefruit is one of our favorite fruits we usually have it right before we eat breakfast. It’s always so refreshing. This salad is no different with the variety of fruits from the grapefruit, raspberries, blackberries, and spinach it makes it not only the prettiest salad it is a delicious salad as well.
All you need to get started it a few simple ingredients.
- A Bag of Spinach
That is four ingredients which makes this easy and budget-friendly and who doesn’t love a meal where you can save a couple of bucks.
There no measurements to this salad because it all depends on personal taste. We personally like a lot of grapefruit and raspberries in our salad. We ended up using the whole grapefruit in ours. Just have some fun with it and add how much of whatever fruit you like to the spinach.
Oh, we forgot to mention that we will be making a Lemon Viniagrette as the dressing for this salad. The lemon with the other fruit goes so perfectly together. For the vinaigrette you will need:
- Olive Oil
Making homemade vinaigrette may seem hard but it is really easy. For this Lemon Vinaigrette, we are going to whisk together all the ingredients in a small bowl until everything is combined. That is all there is to it. The great thing about this dressing is that you can make it ahead of time and just place it in the fridge until you are ready to use it. You also don’t have to use the whole thing you can save some dressing for another salad as well.
This is the prettiest and simplest salad we’ve have ever made. We love the benefits and vitamins we get from the fruits and the spinach this is just one of many healthy recipes we have coming to the blog. Don’t worry we also have some more delicious dessert recipes as well.
We really hope you give this salad a try!

Putting the salad together
- There are no measurements for the salad. Due to everyone's personal preference. For our salad we got one big bowl tossed all the salad ingredients together.
- We served our salad on small plates. One bag of spinach should make about 4 small salads.
