2-4largeeggs, boiled according to your preference(1-2 eggs per serving)
6ouncebag spinach leaves
1/4red onion, thinly sliced
1ruby red grapefruit, peeled and slicedsee note for more options
2blood oranges, peeled and slicedsee note for more options
2sprigsfresh mint, leaves removed and roughly chopped
1/2cupfeta cheese, crumbled
Prepare the Lime Poppy Seed Dressing
In a jar that has a screw-top lid (like a mason jar) combine the poppy seeds, salt and both peppers.
Add the olive oil, lime juice, honey and the dijon mustard to the jar and screw the top on tightly. Give the jar a vigorous shake to emulsify the dressing.
Set the dressing aside while you make the salad, or store it in the refrigerator for one week.
Boil the Eggs
In a saucepan, begin heating the water for boiling your eggs over medium-high heat.
Once the water for your eggs comes to a boil, place them into the water gently and boil for: 6 minutes (soft-boiled), 10 minutes (medium), or 14 minutes (hard).
Once they eggs have finished boiling, drain the hot water and fill the pan with ice water to stop the eggs from cooking further. Peel and set them aside until you're ready to serve the salad.
Assemble the Salad
Give the dressing another vigorous shake and pour a few tablespoons of it into the bottom of a large salad bowl. Add the spinach to the bowl and cover with an additional tablespoon, or two, of dressing. Use a pair of salad tongs to coat the spinach completely in the dressing.
Spoon about 2 cups of spinach leaves onto your plate. Top each serving with slices from 1/2 of the grapefruit, as well as slices from one blood orange. Finish topping each salad with a handful of red onion slices, a 1/4 cup of crumbled feta cheese, and a generous pinch of the torn mint leaves.
Spoon more of the lime poppy seed dressing over the fruits and cheese, if desired, and top the salad with your soft-boiled egg- cut in half.
Serve immediately after assembling and enjoy!
Alternate the Citrus you use (no more than three):
cara cara orange
white (or yellow) grapefruit
Buddha's hand (thinly sliced, unpeeled)
For Meal Prep: keep the citrus slices separate from the spinach, just top the spinach with the onion and cheese prior to leaving for work or school. Right before serving, shake the lime poppy seed dressing and pour onto the spinach. Give the greens a quick toss before topping with the citrus and the egg.
