Winter Beet and Grapefruit Salad


Winter Beet and Grapefruit Salad

  • 2 cups chopped salad mix- romaine purple cabbage and baby kale  (I like the Dole chopped salad blend minus the dressing and toppings for an easy go to option)
  • 2 love beets diced
  • 1 grapefruit tough membrane removed and cut into chunks
  • 2 tbsp crumbled bacon
  • 2 tbsp dried cherries no sugar added
  • 10 pistachios chopped
  • 1 tbsp reduced fat feta optional ***eliminate if doing Whole 30
  • salt & pepper to taste

Kiwi Citrus Vinaigrette: 

  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 2 kiwis peeled
  • 1 lemon juiced
  • 2-3 cuties or 1 orange juiced
  • 1 small shallot chopped
  • 2 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard check ingredients
  • 2 tbsp beet juice optional for color
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Vinaigrette: In a sauté pan heat oil over medium heat and add shallot. Sauté until soft. Add to a blender or magic bullet (which I prefer for small batches of dressing). Add remaining ingredients and pulse until smooth.
  2. Layer salad ingredients and top with Kiwi Citrus Vinaigrette
