This Detox Salad Will Give you All The Spa Vibes

Salmon, cucumber and grapefruit salad

I have this weird thing with fruit — I don’t like it in things. I love berries and stone fruit and citrus on their own always, but when it comes to tossing those same things into a bowl with yogurt or a salad and even dessert, count me out. It’s an aversion I’ve had for as long as I can remember, so when I found myself shoveling this salmon, cucumber and grapefruit salad into my mouth at a rapid rate a few weeks ago, I almost didn’t recognize myself.

Something about the flavors — just the right combination of acid and fattiness and freshness — came together to create this most delicious, and insanely nutritious dish. If you’re looking for a weeknight dinner that checks out in pretty much every category (it’s easy too!), look no further than my salmon, cucumber and grapefruit salad.
