When CerealMom and I used to work together, we would make and share lunch almost every single day. Now that she’s freelancing, we’ve reunited on the backporch of my workplace. Today’s lunch was delicious–and all thanks to my weekly produce box from New Leaf. In fact, our salad was so quick-to-make, simple and tasty, I thought I’d share the recipe.

Grapefruit and Chevre Salad


  • 4 oz dill-encrusted chevre
  • 1 medium-sized grapefruit, peeled and cut in half
  • 3 bunches of arugula
  • 1 T extra virgin olive oil (the more pungent the better)
  • Sea Salt and fresh-ground pepper to taste

Rinse arugula, trim stems, tear into bite-sized pieces and place in bowl. Juice 1/2 of grapefruit into a mug and whisk with a pinch of salt, oil and pepper. Cut the other half of the fruit into bite-sized chunks and place in bowl with arugula. Add dressing and toss. Crumble chevre over the top to finish.

We served our salad up with a side of avocado and some whole wheat Breton crackers. I imagine that it would make a pretty tasty dinner too–especially if served with toasted almonds and a cold, half-pint glass of hefeweisen or a white ale (FYI: Lagers tend to be too bitter for an arugula pairing. I think the milky quality of the hefe or ale is a great compliment to citric and chevre.)
