Grapefruit Pear Salad Recipe & The Best of Raw Awards!

serves 2 – $2.50 per serving


  • 1 grapefruit ($.50)
    2 pears, sliced ($1.40)
  • 1 small onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 head romaine, chopped ($1.90)
  • 1/4 cup walnuts ($.50)


  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice ($.20)
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil ($.30)
  • 2 tablespoons agave ($.20)
  • pinch nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

The pears and grapefruit made this a nice summery salad that reminded me warmer weather isn’t too far away. All citrus is still in season right now, too, and there are good prices and wonderful quality to be had.

Cut the grapefruit by first slicing off
about 1/4″ off the top and bottom. Stand the grapefruit up on a cut
side and slice along the outside curve of the fruit, cutting away the
skin and pith. Use a sharp knife to cut each grapefruit section away
from the membrane. Slice the
pears and onions, and chop the lettuce. Toss together and sprinkle the
walnuts on top. Whisk together all the dressing ingredients and drizzle
over the top.
