Spinach Salad with Grapefruit & Fennel
This fennel and pink grapefruit salad makes a great side dish for a soul-satisfying meal. Sautéing the fennel softens the anise flavor, making it soft and sweet. We pair this with our Slow-Cooker Deep-Dish Pizza — the tang of the grapefruit cuts through the richness of the pizza.
Zest and juice 1 grapefruit, then segment the second grapefruit.
Sauté fennel in 1 Tbsp. oil in a sauté pan over medium-high heat until beginning to brown, 20 minutes. Deglaze pan with grapefruit juice, scraping up any brown bits; simmer until juice reduces to ¼ cup, 5 minutes. Strain fennel; cool fennel and juice. Whisk together zest, grapefruit juice, remaining 2 Tbsp. oil, and vinegar for the vinaigrette; season with salt and pepper.
Toss grapefruit segments, fennel, spinach, and olives with vinaigrette.
