Simple, quick and tasty. That’s what comes to mind when I think of this salad. The sweetness of honey, the tang of mustard and a good hearty blast of sweet red grapefruit make this a sure-fire winner on even the hottest day. It puts a smile on my face every time I make it.
It only takes a few minutes to put this together, which makes it a great choice for a quick-lunch. Alternately, just pack up the ingredients separately and assemble it right at your desk in a few seconds for a light alternative to a standard office lunch.
I developed this recipe for FoodBuzz Family Bites. The ingredients used were provided by Newman’s Own, which is why there is a brand specified, but any Honey Mustard dressing that you love, whether homemade or store-bought will work wonders here.

What I would have done differently had I thought of it at the time:
Nothing really, but my wife would probably recommend goat cheese.
