Grapefruit Vinaigrette

Grapefruit Vinaigrette


If you have a great dressing, then you can make just about any salad taste delicious! Start with the basics and add to the recipe over time. It’s really good to experiment by adding different herbs, or fresh juices, even berries such as raspberries can give their own unique flavour!


  • 160mls (2/3 cup) extra virgin olive oil
  • 125mls (½ cup) fresh grapefruit juice
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh chives
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp Perfect Sweet™ xylitol, to taste
  • Pink Himalayan Salt & freshly ground black pepper, to taste


  1. Place the oil, grapefruit juice, garlic, chives, mustard, vinegar and xylitol in a glass jar or bottle.
  2. Season with salt and pepper, seal and shake to combine.  Let sit for a minute to allow flavours to develop.
  3. Taste to adjust sweetness.

You can experiment with this basic recipe by adding different herbs and ingredients.


Grapefruit and Tahini Dressing

Replace the mustard with 2 tbsp Tahini paste.  Method remains the same.  You may need to add a little water to make the dressing pourable. (You can also use orange juice and that is delicious!)
