I am starting off the week trying to offer up some healthier Valentine’s Day recipes with this Valentine’s Day Red Salad. This is a great starter salad full of amazing flavor contrasts. February is also Women’s Cardiovascular Health Awareness, so this is perfect for heart health with some of my favorite ingredients including grapefruit, orange, beets, fennel and chicory. This healthy combination is ideal for Valentine’s dinner or anytime this season. This recipe is adapted from mother-daughter duo Tracy and Terry Paulding. Paulding & Co. a San Francisco based family owned business who hosts culinary classes and catering. Serve prior to any Valentine entree of your choice and enjoy!
