This week’s French Fridays with Dorie recipe was supposed to be Crab and Grapefruit Salad (pp 134-135) but when I came to make it, I realised that I had shrimp in the freezer and figured it would be just as good. I’m all about using up what we have in the fridge right now so I made quite a few changes to this recipe but it’s all good. It was a perfect lunch for one on a hot sunny March afternoon (yes, really!).
My salad consisted of grapefruit segments and juice, shredded mint, cooked shrimp, red and yellow bell peppers, scallions, lemon zest and lemon juice and a splash of olive oil. So so easy to whip up and I imagine this would be great with blood oranges too!
So so good. Light and sweet with enough acid and savoury flavours to make it definitely not a dessert. I’ll be making this again because I always have all these ingredients on hand. What a great “find”
French Fridays with Dorie participants do not publish the recipes on our blogs, rather, we prefer if you purchase Around My French Table for yourselves (trust me, you definitely want this book!) which you can do here on Amazon or Amazon Canada. Or for free worldwide shipping, buy from The Book Depository. Go on, treat yourself and join us this year!
