Celery Fennel and Grapefruit Salad

Winter is filled with hearty vegetables and rich, braised meats. Here’s a nice contrast to these denser dishes, Celery Fennel and Grapefruit Salad. Peppery arugula accompanied by crisp and refreshing celery, the sweet anise flavor of fennel and the tang of the grapefruit, topped off with an Asian-influenced vinaigrette.

Pair this delicious salad with our Sesame Vinaigrette. It’s got a triple hit of sesame: toasted sesame oil, toasted black and white sesame seeds and a touch of tahini, with a little lime juice for just the right balance.

The Celery Fennel and Grapefruit Salad tossed with the Sesame Vinaigrette provides a light and refreshing side to any winter meal or it makes a great lunch!
