Green Salad with Ruby Grapefruit & Grape Seed Vinaigrette

One thing I love about summer is all the fresh produce! The seasonal fruits and vegetables make recipes really pop.  I love the sun but my body can not handle the heat. I blame it on being a redhead. So I often look for lighter dishes to prepare when I can. Something great to share with company or to have as a light lunch. Salads are great for this. You can make a lot and eat it as you like. The newest salad I have been introduced to by my daughter is the Green Salad with Ruby Grapefruit & Grape Seed Vinaigrette.
