Make this Pink and Red grapefruit pomegranate salad to blow your sweetie and your family away ! I am taking part in a progressive valentines dinner hosted by my foodie tribe and my contribution to the menu is the salad. Jewel-like pomegranate arils brighten up this delicious salad. Pomegranates are a symbol of Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love so very apt to be putting them in a love salad ! The salad being heart healthy um… good for the heart 😉 is just an added bonus. If you find your family acting a little lovesick after dinner … you may blame the salad 😉 Add some kiwi or salad greens to add some extra zest and color to the salad.
Use your favorite salad dressing to dress this salad up.

- 2 tbs Balsamic Vinaigrette
