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.

Whisk together zest, grapefruit juice, remaining 2 Tbsp. oil, and vinegar for the vinaigrette; season with salt and pepper.
