French Fridays with Dorie - Crab and Grapefruit Salad
This was my first go at a recipe chosen by the FFwD group.
Even my kids enjoyed it quite a bit...after an all around taste test, there was no salad left. I liked the combination of shellfish with grapefruit, very refreshing and a nice colorful presentation.
Would certainely be a nice addition to my Easter brunch next week.
I must add that the salad had quite an "international flair". Although the shopping list was rather short, I did find myself scurrying around town to get shellfish from the North Sea, grapefruit from Israel, a cucumber and red pepper from Spain, scallions from Germany and mâche (lambs lettuce) from Belgium. The lettuce served as the final touch on top of the salad. And I bought the baguette that I served alongside the salad at my favorite French bakery.
The whole experience was a lot of fun and I am very much looking forward to next Friday.
