Grapefruit, fennel and radish salad

Grapefruit, fennel and radish salad

1 small bulb fennel, trimmed of fronds and triangular core and thinly sliced top to bottom

6 radishes, trimmed and thinly sliced

1 ruby red grapefruit, peeled and sectioned (see note)

4 fresh basil leaves, minced

1/4 cup dried cranberries

1 tablespoon chopped walnuts

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

1 tablespoon rice vinegar or white wine vinegar

1 tablespoon honey

Pinch cayenne pepper

Pinch kosher salt

Makes 4 servings.

Toss all ingredients together in a nonreactive medium bowl and serve.

Note: To cut the grapefruit into sections, remove the skin and pith by cutting it away in strips from top to bottom with a sharp knife. Then holding the grapefruit in your hand, use a small paring knife to cut between the thin membrane walls of the sections and allow the small wedges of fruit to drop into a bowl.
