Packed full of good-for-you stuff, a wonderful blend of tastes and textures with a low-fat, tart dressing. **Note: If you currently take cholesterol-lowering medication (statins) such as Lipitor, discuss grapefruit consumption with your doctor! (Studies show that an enzyme in grapefruit interacts with statins, causing an increased & potentially harmful blood level of medication.)

Oh WOWIE, SusieQusie!!! This is a terrifc salad!! I didn't include the orange sectons, but just fresh orange zest over top. And I used turnip chips in place of the water chestnuts--same consistency and crunch. The dressing was perfection! Made for Tag Game.
