Serves: 4
This is a great light and crisp salad - perfect for warm summer days (or nights!)
  • 1 head butter lettuce
  • ½ red onion, sliced thin
  • 1 grapefruit - zest, supremes and juice
  • 1 cup hazelnuts, toasted
  • 1 teaspoon champagne vinegar
  • olive oil
  • salt / pepper to taste
  1. Wash and tear the butter lettuce into bite size pieces. Place into a big bowl.
  2. On a mandolin or with a sharp knife, slice the red onion into the thinnest slices possible. Soak in vinegar for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, add onion / vinegar to the bowl with the lettuce.
  3. Toast the hazelnuts in a 350 oven for 10 minutes until just golden brown. Add to the salad when cooled.
  4. Zest ½ of the grapefruit and sprinkle over the lettuce mixture. Supreme the grapefruit so that only the fleshy pieces are incorporated into the salad, and then squeeze the remaining juice over the salad.
  5. Drizzle with olive oil.
  6. Sprinkle salt and pepper to taste.
  7. Toss and serve immediately.
  8. Enjoy!
