ACTIVE: 20 min l TOTAL: 20 min l SERVES: 4

1 large pink or red grapefruit

1/2 cup sour cream

3 scallions, thinly sliced

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

1 bunch watercress, trimmed

2 heads endive, thinly sliced crosswise

1 head Bibb lettuce, torn into bite-size pieces

4 stalks celery, thinly sliced

1 medium red onion, thinly sliced

1/2 pound smoked trout, skin discarded and fish flaked


  1. Grate 1/4 teaspoon zest from the grapefruit and set aside. Trim the ends from the grapefruit, then cut away the peel and white pith. Working over a bowl, cut along both sides of each membrane with a paring knife to remove the segments. Discard any seeds. Cut the grapefruit segments into pieces. Squeeze the juice from the membranes into the bowl.
  2. Make the dressing: Whisk the sour cream, 2 tablespoons of the grapefruit juice, the grapefruit zest, scallions, 2 tablespoons water and 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper in a bowl.
  3. Toss the watercress, endive, lettuce, celery and onion in a large bowl. Add the dressing and toss to coat. Divide the salad among shallow bowls. Top with the reserved grapefruit segments and the smoked trout.
