What a surprising mix of  new flavors showing off in this unusual salad exhibiting fresh bold and mild great produce blending together with the crab meat.

Truly, crab meat can be a little savorless for my taste, when in this salad each ingredients is calling for the delicate flavor of the seafood. The grapefruit vinaigrette complements all.

Buying and Working with Grapefruits

Choose smooth-skinned grapefruits that are firm yet heavy for their size. Avoid the ones who are bruised. I try to buy organic they are generally sweeter and tastier.

To halve a grapefruit, cut it between the equator and the blossom end, then, using a pairing knife, slice along each membrane wall (just inside the white pit), to keep the segments intact and letting them drop into a bowl.
