Salmon, green bean and pink grapefruit salad recipe

7 ratings

Super-sweet and juicy with a fragrant, tangy flavour, pink grapefruit adds a real kick to this gorgeous salmon salad recipe. Roasting with rosemary, fennel and garlic really elevates the delicate salmon fillets, and adding segments of pink grapefruit, as well as a dash of juice to the salad dressing, brings everything together wonderfully.
