About this recipe: Refreshing grapefruit, sweet orange and cool cucumber are tossed with little gem lettuce and a orange-balsamic dressing, then topped with creamy goat's cheese. A lovely starter salad.


Serves: 6 

  • 1 orange, peeled and sliced
  • 1 small grapefruit, peeled and sliced
  • 1 cucumber, sliced
  • 2 little gem lettuces, torn
  • 1 small red onion, sliced into rings
  • 4 tablespoons orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 pinch sugar
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 50g soft goat's cheese, crumbled

Prep:15min  ›  Ready in:15min 

  1. Toss together the orange, grapefruit, cucumber, lettuce and onion.
  2. Combine the juice, vinegar, sugar, salt, pepper and olive oil in a jar with a lid. Shake well to combine. Pour over the salad and toss to coat (start with half of the dressing, and add more to taste).
  3. Place the salad in a serving bowl and sprinkle with the goat's cheese. Serve straightaway.


You could use cos lettuce instead of little gem, and for extra flavour could try feta instead of goat's cheese.
