Ingredients

  • 1 to 2 grapefruits
  • 1 medium shallot
  • 1/2 teaspoon champagne vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon pink peppercorns
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt or coarse salt
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 Belgian endives
  • 4 celery stalks, thinly sliced on the diagonal (2 tablespoons leaves reserved for sprinkling)
  • 2 ounces chevre (soft goat cheese; about 1/2 small log), cut into four 1/2-inch rounds

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Cut peel and pith from each grapefruit. Holding over a bowl, carve out flesh between the membranes, letting segments drop into the bowl. Squeeze membranes over bowl. Strain juice into a measuring cup. Set aside 12 segments; return 1/4 cup juice to the bowl (reserve remaining juice and segments for another use).

  2. Step 2

    Add shallot, vinegar, peppercorns, and salt to bowl with juice; toss. Whisk in oil. Set dressing aside.

  3. Step 3

    Cut each endive in half lengthwise; cut out cores. Cut endive halves lengthwise into thin matchsticks. Toss with celery in a medium bowl. Pour in about three-quarters of the dressing; toss.

  4. Step 4

    Put a small amount of endive and celery onto each of 4 plates, and place a chevre round in center. Arrange 3 grapefruit segments around chevre. Top each salad with remaining endive and celery. Drizzle with remaining dressing, and sprinkle with celery leaves.
