When the recipe for Crab and Grapefruit Salad was picked for this weeks French Friday, I seriously thought of skipping the week. The thought of wasting a good can of crab meat on a salad with grapefruit was something I wasn’t sure I wanted to do. However, this was Dorie we’re talking about! She has taken me to many places that I would have never gone! I have tried all sorts of things that were definitely out of my comfort range, with wonderful results! Even though, the chatter from other bloggers seemed to show concern over this recipe, I decided to dive right in.
This salad calls for a red or yellow pepper, a ruby red grapefruit, a kirby cucumber (which I forgot to buy), scallions, and a small chili pepper (which I left out), a pound of lump crabmeat and some fresh mint. I served mine with baby greens. I cheated with the grapefruit and bought a jar of fresh grapefruit sections from the grocery store. This salad came together very well and, was another easy recipe for a terribly busy week! I said before, Dorie never leads astray. This was a wonderfully fresh, delicious salad, that my husband and I really enjoyed! I will be making it again! Thanks Dorie! Happy Friday Everyone!
