You don’t have to have an Inspiralizer to enjoy the bright flavors of this salad recipe from’s Ali Maffucci. “Pair this with a light white wine and have it as a late-afternoon snack before dinner,” she says.



  • 2 Golden Beets, Boiled or Roasted
  • 1/4 cup Walnuts
  • 1 med Ruby Red Grapefruit
  • 2 tsp Honey
  • 1 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 tbsp Fresh Mint
  • 1 dash Salt
  • 1 dash Pepper, Black


1 Slice, peel or spiralize beets.
2 Bring a large pot filled ⅓ of the way with water to a boil. Once boiling, add the beet slices and cook for 7-10 minutes or until fork-tender.
3 When done, drain into a colander and then rinse lightly with cold water until able to be handled then
4 Place walnuts into a food processor and pulse until chunky-ground.
5 Cut a ¼-inch-thick slice from each end of grapefruit.
6 With flat ends down, place on a flat surface, and remove peel in strips, cutting from top to bottom following the sides of the grapefruit. Remove any remaining white flesh (the pith.)
7 Hold the peeled grapefruit over a bowl and slice between membranes, and then gently remove whole segments and set aside.
8 Reserve ¼ cup of the juice from the fruit and whisk it together with the other ingredients for the dressing and set aside.
9 Lay down the beets first, layer the grapefruit slices over and then drizzle with the dressing.
10 Garnish with the ground walnut. Serve fresh!
