"Arugula is a delicious alternative to lettuce, and the citrus juice dressing is a delicious alternative to heavier store bought dressings. A lovely precursor to most meals, or a great stand-alone in the summer. Garnish with walnuts or sunflower seeds, if you like."

freshly squeezed grapefruit juice
freshly squeezed orange juice
extra virgin olive oil
salt to taste
arugula - rinsed, dried and torn
pear, cored and sliced
red bell pepper, thinly sliced
A nice alternate from the regular salad, especially if it's the dinner club. Next time though I will use a more tart yellow grapefruit rather than the sweeter red, just to suit my own taste. I added a sprinkle of sunflower seed as well to compliment the arugula.
This was alright but the dressing was just too light. I think it would be fine with something a bit heartier.
I changed the recipe a bit by just using orange juice and eliminating the grapefruit juice. It turned out mild and delightful and I plan on making this dressing often from now on. As far as the salad itself, I added the suggested walnuts plus a few little bits of goat cheese which went well with the juicy pear.
This is the best salad I have ever had! I used all grapefruit juice since I was out of oranges and added sunflower seeds, as another poster suggested. Who knew something so simple could be so delicious?
I just love arugula Jeanette and eat it at least three times a week. You're so right, this light citrus dressing complimented the spicey flavor of the arugula so nicely. Thanks for a great lunch!!
I wasn't crazy about this recipe. It just seemed kind of bland. I thought it would be much better, it sounded so good. I was disappointed but didn't know how to jazz it up.
This was too sweet of a salad for me so I can't rate this based on my personal tastes because I'm so picky when it comes to salads but my mom who likes almost any salad said that it lacked pizazz or flavor.
Great tasting, simple salad!
