How to make grapefruit vinaigrette

There are two ways to make a vinaigrette. We prefer the first option here as it's easier and makes fewer dishes. Bonus is that you can store the dressing in the same jar you use to make it!

  1. Put the ingredients into a 2-cup jar with a tight-fitting lid then shake shake shake.
  2. Put the ingredients into a bowl and whisk.

How long does this grapefruit salad dressing last?

This dressing with keep well for 1 week in your fridge, making it ideal for meal-prep.

Can I use store-bought grapefruit juice rather than squeezing it fresh?

Yes, but it may change the flavor if the juice you buy is sweetened or has anything added to it.

If you're using sweetened, store-bought grapefruit juice, omit the honey in the recipe and only add some if you think it needs some after tasting it.
