Crab and Grapefruit Salad…French Fridays with Dorie~

It only took a glance at the photo in Around My French Table to sell me on this stunning salad.  Ruby red grapefruit are one of my favorite winter snacks…the perfect balance of sweet and tart. Segments of this juicy citrus were diced and combined with cucumber, bell pepper, jalapeño, sliced scallions and lump crabmeat.  A dressing of olive oil, grapefruit juice, minced mint plus a squeeze of lemon and a shake of Tabasco was light and complementary.  It hit a record 80º today…way above the average around here for mid-March…and this amazing salad was cool and utterly refreshing….with the perfect amount of zing from the peppers.  Thanks, Dorie, for another winner!


This recipe is in one of my favorite cookbooks: Around My French Table by Dorie Greenspan.

  12. Okay, okay, enough about the salad. Looked good. Tasted good. But, I LOVED reading your Twelve About Me’s. Aside from being “skinny”, you seem to have a wonderful sense of humor. And, that your husband takes care of hearts warms mine. My 42-year-old daughter is on her third pacemaker. We know a little bit about hearts in my family. Have fun in Georgia with your family. Mary
