Wow, yum! What a crisp, flavorful, refreshing salad! It's so pretty with its pastel colors too. This salad was an adventure for me since I've never had fennel or hearts of palm before. Turns out I love both! I used a shallot instead of red onion because I like that it's more mild. Instead of peeling the grapefruit, I just cut it in half and scooped out the flesh with a spoon. The gorgonzola cheese goes well with all the ingredients and the vinaigrette was not bitter at all. I'm so glad I went out of my comfort zone to try this salad!

The most adventuresome dish I've prepared to date. For culinary creativity, Jennifer deserves an "A." Salad dressing could be halved.

I wanted to give this a try since it was something different than what we normally eat. It was very pretty, but I think there are just too many strong flavors mixed together. Very creative idea, though. :)
