Chicken & grapefruit salad

Andreas Trottmasndorff


  • 1 large ruby grapefruit
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 to 2 tbsp chopped fresh dill , or 1/4 to 1/2 tsp dried dillweed
  • 1 barbecued deli chicken , or 2 large cooked skinless, boneless chicken breasts
  • 41643 small red onion
  • 142-g pkg mesclun greens
  • 1/3 cup crumbled feta , optional


  • Using a serrated knife, peel skin from grapefruit, including white pith. Then, to catch juice, cut out segments over a large bowl. Leave segments in bowl and measure out 3 to 4 tbsp (45 to 60 mL) juice. Pour into a small bowl. Whisk in oil, honey, salt and 1/4 tsp (1 mL) dillweed. Taste and add remaining dillweed, if you wish.
  • Discard skin from chicken. Tear meat into large chunks or slice cooked breasts into thick strips. Slice red onion into thin rings. Place greens in bowl with grapefruit segments. Add chicken and onion. Drizzle with dressing. Toss to evenly coat, then scatter feta overtop.
