Arugula Fennel Grapefruit + Pine Nuts Salad

Perhaps one of the most simple salads to make — and also one of the most beautiful and delicious. The bite of the arugula (rocket) is softened with a touch of olive oil and lemon, then sweetened with the grapefruit, then juxtaposed with the shaved fennel. Add a little crunch with those pine nuts and your taste buds are in heaven. Serve it as a first course and feel free to add a little healthy protein for a heartier meal, and you’ve got yourself an A+ dinner.



  • 2 large handfuls of arugula (rocket)
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 fennel bulb, shaved on a mandoline, or cut thinly with a knife
  • 1 grapefruit, peeled and quartered
  • 1 small handful of pine nuts
  • drizzle of balsamic glaze


1. In a bowl, massage arugula with olive oil and lemon juice with your hands until well-coated, then plate.

2. Add fennel, grapefruit and pine nuts on top.

3. Drizzle with balsamic glaze and serve!
