|Refreshing Crab & Grapefruit Salad|
We have had a beautiful, early warm spring here in the normally frozen tundra known as Chicagoland, so this week's recipe was a pleasant and refreshing accompaniment to a breezy Sunday afternoon lunch on the sun porch. I love being a member of French Fridays because things I would not normally seek out, like crab (as I have said before, not much of a seafood fan), end up being such pleasant surprises. This recipe was no exception. Incredibly simple, and undeniably elegant, this little salad will be on my summer menus for sure. I was able to find super chunky and delicious lump crab at a nearby specialty market. The dressing of olive oil, grapefruit and lemon juices was perfect, but the mint is the real standout here, I was surprised a bit by this ingredient, because I normally associate mint with desserts, but it adds so much to the delicate flavor of the salad.
Apologies, dear readers, for the late and rather short post, but it has been an extremely busy week, and this little blogger is tuckered out. Until next week (asparagus and bacon, oh my!), bon apétit!
