Summer is in full swing and cool dinners are a staple in our house in Florida. I love experimenting with new salads and in particular, slaw – I had a Ruby Red grapefruit that needed to be used, so I decided to try a Slaw with Grapefruit Dressing. I’m really glad I did. It was wonderful!
- One large head of finely shredded cabbage
- Juice of one Ruby Red grapefruit
- 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 1/2 cup white balsamic vinegar
- 3 tablespoons raw sugar
- salt and pepper to tast
In a bowl, or large measuring cup, add the liquid ingredients, the sugar, a big pinch of salt, and a couple of grinds of pepper. Whisk very well and taste, you want to taste the grapefruit, and you want it to be slightly sweet. Adjust the ingredients to you liking and whisk again.
In a large bowl, pour the dressing over the cabbage – with tongs, toss – if there’s not enough liquid, add equal parts oil and white balsamic until everything is coated, but not swimming in it. Taste. If it needs more sugar, go ahead and add it. This is purely preference. Refrigerate for about an hour to let the flavors marry -
We had this with our Vegan “Chicken” salad and it was perfect together, creamy, fruity, crunchy, sweet…. Hit all the right spots!
