Grape and Grapefruit Salad

Grape and grapefruit salad, zoith its mix-ture of sweet and sharp fruit flavours, makes an interesting hors d’oeuvre for a summer luncheon, perhaps followed by a cold fish dish.

1 grapefruit, peeled, pith removed and segmented

8 oz. seedless green grapes, halved

1 pear, peeled, cored and finely chopped

3 oz. walnuts, chopped

1 large crisp lettuce, outer leaves removed, washed and separated into leaves

2 tablespoons lemon juice

6 tablespoons olive oil

4 teaspoon salt teaspoon black pepper

1 teaspoon caraway seeds

In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine the fruit and the nuts and mix them together thoroughly with a wooden spoon.

Arrange the lettuce leaves on a serving plate and spoon the salad over them.

Place all the ingredients for the dressing in a screw-top jar. Shake vigorously until they are well mixed. Spoon the dressing over the salad. Place the plate in the refrigerator to chill for 30 minutes before serving.
