I made this dressing the other day and it is lovely. I don't care for grapefruit, but was given some and found the same recipe in the Florida Citrus Council site. It is not overpowering with grapefruit flavor, and I put it on a tossed salad and really enjoyed it. It is a light dressing and versatile. Carole

That is delicious! I made this for a spinach salad (with grapefruit sections, red onion and candied pecans). Perfect compliment! (I used an immersion blender to combine the oil/citrus, and didn't have poppy seeds, so used black sesame. Thank you Dancer for a lovely dressing!
