Spicy Thai Grapefruit Salad
This spicy Thai grapefruit salad is bright and zesty with complimentary flavors. It's a real showpiece for a dinner party! Punch it up with some rice noodles for a vegetarian main course or add in some ahi tuna to make a delicious poke bowl.
I wanted a salad that reflected my mood this week and this is a glorious one! This is my ode to the greens, pinks, and yellows that are popping up everywhere. It's absolutely gorgeous in Evanston right now - spring is in full bloom and the trees, tulips, and daffodils are stunning. My little hydrangeas are growing and I planted a peony and some astilbes yesterday. Living in Qatar for so many years I forgot about spring. It gets kind of hot there this time of year and it feels a lot more like summer. When I lived in Jordan, I loved the spring rains that carpeted the rocky terrain in wild flowers, but nothing compares to the green, green, green of the Midwest. It's hard-earned though. This winter seemed like it might never end (Seasonal Affective Disorder is real, people!) But, I'm living in the moment and relishing every chance to be outside.
I know many of you are probably experiencing the same natural beauty, but wherever you are, I'm happy to share this recipe that I know will brighten your day.
