YUM! I made this tonight and topped it off with some shrimp. I used up the napa cabbage I had in the fridge in place of the arugula. I also added some garlic, a couple splashes of rice vinegar, and a splash of sesame oil to the dressing. YUM!
Loved loved loved this salad. I made this for myself tonight as my stomach hasn't been feeling well and I didn't want rice dish I made for DH and DS. I had everything on hand which made this a very nice salad to make (except for the shallot). Dressing was very delicious and reminded me of Asian Salad I used to eat in Pacific Beach of my hometown. I used to go there just to eat the salad cause I loved the dressing. I will definitely try variations of this again maybe with some fried noodles or wontons on top next time instead of peanuts.

This salad is packed with so many of my favorite things: grapefruit, arugula, shallots, fresh mint...Easy to make and the orange mint I tried from our garden was especially tasty in the salad. I used amber (dark) agave for a change. It only added to the taste. Colorful, healthy and very delicious! Reviewed for ZWT Asia 2010.
I'm finding that, with the local grocery store, Costco & Trader Joes, I've been able to find almost any veggie & fruit that I want, so finding the blood oranges was no problem, & you're right ~ They make a great addition to this salad! Used almonds instead of the peanuts, but other than that . . . ABSOLUTELY GREAT TASTING SALAD & a recipe I'm happy to keep around! [Made & reviewed in Newest Zaar tag]
