Broiled Grapefruit Salad aka Amazing Brunch Salad

Yes, this salad has it all. The great sweet and spicy taste of warm broiled grapefruit on a bed of fresh greens, crispy chopped bacon, blue cheese and an egg done so pretty it should be in pictures!(oh wait, it is!) Finish this salad with a drizzle of the best Olive Oil, drizzle of Honey and just because we are being decadent here, I like a little bit of Lime Cilantro Seasoned Greek Yogurt. You add the salt’n pepper and this dish is your complete Brunch on a plate! It also works for Lunch and Dinner!

CATEGORY: Brunch
SERVES: 2
LEVEL: Easy, there it is!

INGREDIENTS

Broiled Grapefruits:
1 Ruby Red large Grapefruit (halved and sectioned, or peeled and segmented)
2 tsp of Amazing Rub (Brown sugar based)
½ tsp of Pummull Spice (House Cinnamon blend)

Sprinkle the Grapefruit with seasonings and broil watching closely. It takes about 5-7 minutes as the fruit will release juices, slowing the caramelizing down a little. Set Fruit aside when done.

Salad:
4 Cups of Fresh mixed greens
3 chopped green onions
4 Crisp Bacon slices (try the Amazing Bacon recipe below note)
4 Tbsp crumbled Blue Cheese
4 Tbsp Greek Yogurt (or Mayo) with lime juice and chopped cilantro 
2 Gently cooked sunny side up eggs
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 Tbsp Honey
Salt n Pepper to taste

Assemble greens on 2 plates, add broiled grapefruit sections, bacon, blue cheese, egg to each plate. Drizzle with Olive Oil, Honey and garnish with chopped green onions and Lime/Cilantro Yogurt or Aoli. Best served with grapefruit and eggs warm.

Amazing Bacon is great to prepare in advance and make salads, sandwiches and snacking great!

1 lb of THICK sliced bacon, arrange slices on parchment paper on a large baking sheet. Sprinkle up side with Amazing Rub, Cook for 18 mins in a 400 degree oven. Pull out baking sheet, flip each piece of bacon and sprinkle with Amazing Heat…3 more minutes and out of oven, onto paper towels and onto delicious!
