Spinach Salad with grapefruit

Happy Friday and soon Easter 🙂

I was looking to cook a fresh spring salad and come up with this simple and quick one. One of my friends had used grapefruit instead of lemons, and I decided to try it with this salad- it is refreshing and tasty. Definitely, will try different variations with grapefruit in the next few weeks.

Servings: 2-3 Total time: 15 min
Ingredients:
  • 80 gr spinach
  • 50 gr rucola lettuce/ rocket leaves
  • 3-4 mushrooms ( if you can, use chestnut mushrooms)

  • 40 gr olives
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/2 grapefruit juice
  • 1 tsp salt
  • walnuts
Optional Ingredients:
  • spring onion
  • feta cheese
  • flax seeds
  1. Rinse the spinach and rucola lettuce- if bigger spinach leaves, remove the stem.
  2. Add the leaves to a medium bowl.
  3. Cut the cucumber and mushrooms into disks and add just the cucumber to the salad mix.
  4. In a preheated with just a few drops of oil girl the mushrooms for about 2-3 min each side.
  5. Add the rest of the ingredients- mushrooms, olives, spring onion.
  6. Mix well.
  7. Drizzle olive oil.
