Grapefruit, Beet, and Feta Cheese Salad – Easy Like a Sunday Morning

Grapefruit, Beet, and Feta Cheese Salad – Easy Like a Sunday Morning

Easy Like a Sunday Morning, that’s how the recipes in my “Easy” category will be. Nothing rushed or frantic, nothing with a long list of ingredients. Something that is so easy, you don’t really need a recipe. Something that almost cooks itself or requires no cooking at all.

It wouldn’t feel like Sunday if I didn’t post one of my “Easy” recipes. I was originally planning to post a breakfast recipe today but, well, um, I had a little trouble getting out of bed. I was on a roll last night and ended up staying up late to bake some delicious gluten free bread from a recipe that I can hardly wait to share with you and for the first time ever…I made doughnuts.

Summary: Beautiful colours and a surprising mix of flavours. A salad that is better presented on individual serving plates than tossed together in a bowl.

Gluten-Free | Egg-Free | Sugar-Free | Vegetarian | Dairy-Free-Option | Vegan-Option



  • 2 Cups baby greens
  • 1 grapefruit, sections
  • 1 oz feta cheese, crumbled
  • 2 peeled roasted beets or 1 can whole baby beets, (about 1 cup)
  • 1/4 cup hazelnuts, roasted and halved, or 12 whole candied pecans (optional)


  • 1 1/2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • coarse sea salt to taste
  • coarsely ground pepper to taste


  1. Peel and cut away grapefruit pith with a serrated knife. Cut sections away from membranes. Set aside.
  2. Cut beets into bite size wedges. Set aside.
  3. Divide baby greens between 2 salad plates and arrange grapefruit sections and feta cheese (if using) decoratively on top. Arrange beets and nuts (if using) around the edges of the plates.
  4. In a small bowl toss or shake together the oil and vinegar.
  5. Drizzle salads with oil and vinegar mixture, season with salt and pepper.

    Wow, this looks great. I would have never thought of this combo on my own. Also, now I can’t stop singing the song “Easy” (originally by Lionel Ritche, better done by Faith No More).

    I am glad I found your blog through the Hearth and Soul Hop. I would love if you checked out my blog:
