Grapefruit Dressing

If you like the flavor of grapefruit and are looking for a nice refreshing salad dressing, this is the one. I made this grapefruit dressing with a lot of grapefruit juice and very little olive oil turning the dressing into a thinner and very light version. Here is the recipe.

Grapefruit Dressing:


  • Juice of 1/2 grapefruit including bits of pulp
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1/8 cup olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic crushed or 1/2 tsp garlic paste
  • Salt & pepper


  • In a bowl squeeze juice from 1/2 grapefruit.
  • Add honey, crushed garlic, salt and pepper and whisk to blend together.
  • Add olive oil and whisk into the grapefruit juice.


Taste for salt and adjust accordingly. Add more grapefruit juice for more grapefruit flavor if you like. You can also add little pieces of grapefruit flesh into the dressing for added dimension. Toss with salad.

  1. Looks good. Very easy to make. I know all your salad dressings are tasty. I am sure this one will be too.Will try soon.


    1. Hi! From what I could see on the map, American Canyon is near Napa. San francisco is about 1 hour southwest of Napa, and I am another 1 hour south of San Francicso near San Jose, to give you an idea. Sightseeing in Napa Valley?

        1. Oh how lovely! Napa is amazing! A few of my favorite wineries is Duckhorn – outstanding garden here. Rombauer is great too – lovely hillside garden. And Rutherford Hill is awesome as well, Sterling Winery with the gondala is great too, Coppola, Domaine Chandon, all the wineries are oustanding. Drink plenty of water! Napa gets super hot in the summer.

          Some of our favorite restaurants are Bottega, Mustards Grill, Bouchon, actually you can’t go wrong with any of the food in Napa – they all taste amazing and I am vegetarian too, still there are loads of options.

          One of my favorite restaurants is Alchemy, decor is so pretty at night. Its like a upscale green house with plants all lite up with little lights, just a lovely restaruant.

          Would love to meet up if you happen to be in the South Bay!

          1. Thank you for all this information.i jotted it all down. I knew you would know where the great food was. Not sure of plans yet. I would love to see you in person. This made me hungry.
