Used different ingredients. I also like to use fresh spinach in a salad like this for a different texture and taste - 29 Sep 2008

Used different ingredients. Easy and excellent I used chopped iceberg lettuce... For an extra taste garnish with a few prawn or a little flaked cooked whitefish marinated in some lime juice... And/or add a handful of dried cranberries for a colour contrast... - 29 Sep 2008


This was nice and tasted light. I imagine the taste will depend greatly on the quality of the citris. Also freshly ground black pepper is good. I peeled the membranes off the grapefruit since they tend to be very bitter. My hubby and I ate it all at once. - 29 Sep 2008
