WARM GRAPEFRUIT AND BABY SPINACH SALAD
Yield: 6 servings
1 tbsp Red wine vinegar
2 tbsp Extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 tsp Pepper
1 1/2 tsp Butter
1 lg Grapefruit, peeled, cut into sections & halved
1 tsp Paprika
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 lb Baby spinach leaves
In a small bowl, whisk together the vinegar, olive oil, and pepper to make a vinaigrette. Set aside.
In a large, nonreactive skillet over medium-high heat, melt the butter. When the butter begins to foam, add the grapefruit, paprika, and salt. Reduce the heat slightly and saute until the grapefruit is heated through, 2-3 min. Add the spinach leaves and gently fold them together with the warm fruit just long enough to wilt the spinach, about 45 seconds.
Transfer the warm spinach-grapefruit mixture to a salad bowl and add the vinaigrette. Toss well and divide among 6 individual salad plates.
