One of my favorite dishes in the summer is a tabbouleh salad. It is cooling, fresh, and light tasting on hot days while still fueling me to get out and do all the things I love. It also is one of those salads that seems to taste better with time, as the flavors blend together, making it a great meal prep dish in the summer to have on hand.
This is a healthy twist on a classic caesar salad. During the summertime, I am not a fan of turning my oven on. I usually keep things raw & fresh or I love to do my cooking outside on the grill! Grilling the veggies for this salad just enhances the flavors and warmth of this salad. I love how the char of the romaine lettuce and the tangy dressing taste together in your mouth.
This light tasting salad takes only minutes to throw together and is such a fresh and light tasting addition to any meal. This salad not only is full of flavor but is packed with nutritional benefits. When we think of citrus fruits we think about the vitamin C benefits which is true, 1/2 a medium grapefruit can contain about 45 mg of vitamin C. However, pink grapefruits also contain lycopene, a carotenoid phytonutrient which is responsible for its pink color, making it also a good source of Vitamin A and a dietary antioxidant.
