Grapefruit-and-Fennel Salad with Lemon-Wasabi Dressing

  • HEALTHY

For an invigorating crunchy-sweet-tart salad, Su-Mei Yu ingeniously tosses an eclectic mix of winter and early spring produce in lemon juice spiked with grated ginger and wasabi. According to Thai tradition, the lemon may ease coughs and the pears a sore throat; the kiwis may even help arthritis.

  1. 1/2 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
  2. 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  3. 1 tablespoon minced shallot
  4. 2 teaspoons finely grated fresh ginger
  5. 1/2 teaspoon wasabi paste
  6. Salt
  7. 2 grapefruits
  8. 1 fennel bulb, cored and very thinly sliced on a mandoline
  9. 1 Anjou pear—peeled, cored and cut into thin wedges
  10. 1 kiwi, peeled and cut into thin wedges
  1. In a small bowl, combine the lemon zest and juice with the shallot, ginger and wasabi paste and season with salt.
  2. Using a sharp knife, peel the grapefruits, removing all of the bitter white pith. Working over a large serving bowl, cut in between the membranes to release the sections. Add the fennel, pear and kiwi to the bowl along with the dressing. Toss gently and serve right away.
