Pink Grapefruit Vinaigrette

This light refreshing blended grapefruit vinaigrette is one of my favourite summer flavours.  The dressing whips up in seconds in your blender and then can be drizzled over your salad just before serving.  I buy a box of pink grapefruit in cups with juice in the refrigerator section at the big box store. It keeps in the refrigerator for quick treats and for this dressing.

Dressing ingredients
  • 2/3 cup pink grapefruit
  • 1/3 cup pink grapefruit juice
  • 1/4 cup tarragon vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup oil
  1. Place all ingredients in blender jar and process until smooth.  Transfer dressing to a jar with a lid and refrigerate.
Salad ingredients
  • spinach
  • red or sweet white onion rings
  • sliced cucumber
  • avocado slices
  • pink grapefruit sections
  1. Layer spinach, onion rings, avocado slices and grapefruit sections in that order.  Toss just before serving.
  2.  Give the dressing a good shake and drizzle over salad just before serving.


  1. Terragon Vinagre? Its new to me, sounds wonderful. How do i make it or you buy it?

    1. Tarragon Vinegar can be purchased. If you can't find it, regular vinegar can be used in it's place.

  2. It looks and sounds wonderful! Thank you for the recipe.

  3. This salad sounds great. Maybe I will try buying "grapefruit in juice" at Costco again. I used to do it, but then I had a case that spoiled. That's a hard memory to erase.

  4. Great idea - thanks for sharing! Does anyone know how much juice is in one grapefruit if we want to make our own?

    Recently I tried a British recipe for grapefruit curd (instead of the usual lemon), and was delightfully surprised. Grapefruit is getting more attention these days, and I think it's well deserved. =)

  5. This sounds fresh and tasty!!! Gotta try this.
