Kale Grapefruit Salad

I am such a big fan of kale; I cook with it all the time, use it in smoothies, and love it in salads. One of my favorite restaurants in Tribeca serves a Kale Grapefruit Salad that I just had to recreate at home and of course, share it with you.

1/2 large grapefruit

Kale Grapefruit Salad

This seasonal salad is so light and delicious, in fact my favorite part might be the cheese – ricotta salata. It has a similar texture and taste as Feta cheese, but it’s quite a bit saltier. If you are a fan of salty and sweet food combinations, you will love this salad.

While I was traveling in California this past week, I grabbed the most delicious olive oil blend – pink grapefruit! I couldn’t wait to incorporate the unique flavor into this recipe and many more to come!

As always, leave any questions regarding the recipe in the comments!
