Since there is Spinach in the bin this week, it will be a fine substitute for the arugula called for in this recipe. You can also use maple syrup instead of the honey (it's easier to work with!)

Dressing Ingredients
1/3 cup fresh orange juice
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon minced shallot
1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
1 teaspoon grated orange peel
1 teaspoon minced peeled fresh ginger
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon sesame oil

2 large pink grapefruits, peel and white pith removed
1 pound fennel bulb trimmed, cut into paper-thin slices
1 or 2 avocados, halved, pitted, peeled, cut into thin slices
2 cups salad greens of your choice.

  1. Whisk first 10 ingredients in large bowl to blend. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Using sharp knife, cut between membranes of grapefruits to release segments.
  3. Spread greens in bowl or platter. Add fennel slices & arrange grapefruit segments and avocado slices atop fennel. Drizzle dressing over salad.
