Recipe: Tarragon-Grapefruit Mint Vinaigrette Dressing

The flavors of anise and grapefruit pair wonderfully together. In this recipe, we combine our grapefruit mint and French tarragon to craft a delightfully light dressing for summer salads.


  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 2 Tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup grapefruit mint leaves, packed
  • 1/4 cup French tarragon leaves, packed
  • 3 sprigs parsley, leaves and stalks
  • Squeeze of 1 grapefruit wedge, or to taste
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  1. Start by gently rinsing your herbs under cool tap water. Gently shake off the excess and lay on a towel.
  2. Strip the leaves of French tarragon and grapefruit mint from the main stems, which are too tough to include.
  3. In a food processor, combine all the herbs, oil, vinegar and grapefruit juice. Process until well blended and emulsified.
  4. Salt and pepper to taste.
  5. For best results, let the flavors meld for a few hours before serving over garden salads (try tossing a few pieces of grapefruit segments into your salad).
