Spinach and Grapefruit Salad

Spinach contains iron as well as age-defying antioxidants. Grapefruit is chock-full of vitamin C and potassium. You can use pink or white grapefruit in this salad, though pink grapefruit has the added benefit of lycopene. If you use whole segments of the grapefruit, you’ll also add fiber. The candied walnuts and dried apricots balance the acidity of the grapefruit and increase the antioxidants in this dish. Grace’s Honey-Lime Dressing perfectly compliments the mellow flavor of the spinach.

¼ cup dried apricots
2 recipes Tangy Ginger Dressing to taste.
