Wow yum! What a crisp flavorful refreshing salad! It's so pretty with its pastel colors too. This salad was an adventure for me since I've never had fennel or hearts of palm before. Turns out I love both! I used a shallot instead of red onion because I like that it's more mild. Instead of peeling the grapefruit I just cut it in half and scooped out the flesh with a spoon. The gorgonzola cheese goes well with all the ingredients and the vinaigrette was not bitter at all. I'm so glad I went out of my comfort zone to try this salad! Read More

The most adventuresome dish I've prepared to date. For culinary creativity Jennifer deserves an "A." Salad dressing could be halved. Read More

I loved this salad. I only changed the heart of palm for artichoke hearts and the gorgonzola for feta because I had them on hand. Read More

I love this salad. I used white balsamic vinegar instead of red wine vinegar which makes it a little less acidic. Absolutely delicious. I needed a break from regular green salads quinoa salads etc. My husband loves it too. I will definitely make again. Read More
