Arugula and Grapefruit Salad

Sara Jones, Tucson CSA

Another recipe inspired by our farm visit, peppery arugula
and sweet/sour grapefruit go perfect together in this simple
recipe. The hardest part of this recipe is segmenting the
grapefruit. To do this, just peel the grapefruit with a knife,
cutting away the peel as well as the pith. Remove the
individual segments by cutting between segments in a V
shape towards the center of the fruit.

1 bunch arugula, washed and dried (chop roughly if using
large leaves)
1 grapefruit, cut into segments
1 small handful thinly sliced onion
2 teaspoons olive oil
2 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
Salt and freshly ground pepper
Chopped pecans or walnuts
Crumbled feta or blue cheese

In a small saucepan heat oil, vinegar and grapefruit over
medium high heat. Stir for a few minutes until grapefruit
has released some juice.

Season mixture with salt and pepper. Pour over arugula, tossing to coat. Garnish with nuts and cheese. Serve immediately.
