We've been drinking fresh grapefruit juice mixed with grated fresh ginger because all of us had a bout with the pesky flu. I'm really liking the bright and refreshing color of pink grapefruit and thought why not make Thai-style salad with them. I added some fresh mandarin orange segments (yes I peeled them one by one), grape tomatoes, tiny cucumber coins, and served on top of mixed spring greens. The slightly tart, salty, and sweet Thai-style dressing goes well with the salad. Yummy!
