Mixed Herb Grapefruit Salad

grapefruit salad

Happy Valentine’s Day! Whatever your plans are today, I hope you treat yourself to something nice!! Tonight I plan on cooking a special dinner at home, and serving my favorite dessert that I worked on this afternoon (this is my treat to myself 😉). You will find out soon enough what it is! This mixed herb salad is tossed with freshly cut grapefruit slices, crumbled goat cheese, sliced almonds and dried cranberries. It goes very well with a red wine vinaigrette, pomegranate dressing, raspberry vinaigrette or other light dressing. I think it is the perfect salad for Valentine’s Day because of the beautiful pink color the grapefruit slices add to it!

Do you have any special plans for tonight? Some of you already told me you are staying in, like us, and enjoying a nice dinner at home or going out this weekend after the hype dies down. Last night we went to a comedy show in the city, which was a lot of fun! I am so happy tomorrow if Friday, and it is a long weekend for President’s Day! What are you doing for the 3-day weekend?

    Happy V-day! Your salad looks amazing! So refreshing! I love it!!!!!!!! We stayed in this year. We will probably go out to a late lunch on Saturday or something. I heard it’s suppose to be nice in the city and they are having the big tulip show in the Embarcaderro. I’m hoping to go there this weekend! Have a great long weekend! I’m happy to say, they we got Monday off too, which is a huge treat!!

    What a perfect V-day color palette! I’ve been on a crazy grapefruit kick lately so I have a huge bag of grapefruit sitting on my countertop. This might be a nice change from just slicing them in half and eating them with a spoon.

    Ooh, where did you go for your comedy show?? I think I went to Punchline once with a friend and I don’t remember who we saw, but it was good. Last night, my boyfriend and I ended up going to a nice casual dinner around 8:30 because he had to study and I wanted to work out. It was nice that we ended up avoiding the crowds!

    Can’t wait to see what your favorite dessert is!!

    Long Weekends are always very welcome, aren’t they. What a beautiful looking salad with a great mix of ingredients. I’d like to try this. Looking forward to seeing the upcoming dessert xx

    Great looking salad! We stayed at home for V Day, then went out to dinner Friday night (even though it was Friday I’m sure it was much less frenetic than Valentine’s!). Love the food styling in the photos – really nice.
