PREP INSTRUCTIONS

PREP TIME: 20 MINUTES | ASSEMBLE & COOK TIME: 20 MINUTES

STEP 1: Supreme your grapefruit into segments. Using chef's knife, peel the grapefruit skin, removing all of the bitter white pith. Use a small paring knife to slice along the inside of the membranes of the grapefruit, lifting each supreme out with the paring knife. Each supreme will require two cuts: one to cut the membrane, and one to remove supreme. If this seems too difficult, just peel and segment your grapefruit by hand like you would an orange.

STEP 2: Using chef's knife, quarter pear. Remove stem and seeds. Thinly slice pear into thin wedges.

STEP 3: Place the frisee into large bowl or onto a serving platter. Garnish with grapefruit supremes, pears, torn pieces of burrata, fennel fronds, lemon vinaigrette, honey, salt and pepper. Take a picture of your salad for posting and enjoy!
