    A nice alternate from the regular salad, especially if it's the dinner club. Next time though I will use a more tart yellow grapefruit rather than the sweeter red, just to suit my own taste. I added a sprinkle of sunflower seed as well to compliment the arugula.  -  15 Feb 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I changed the recipe a bit by just using orange juice and eliminating the grapefruit juice. It turned out mild and delightful and I plan on making this dressing often from now on. As far as the salad itself, I added the suggested walnuts plus a few little bits of goat cheese which went well with the juicy pear.  -  01 Feb 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was alright but the dressing was just too light. I think it would be fine with something a bit heartier.  -  14 Sep 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
