      For ZWT 5 the Dining Daredevils. This is a really nice combination. I like the idea of having the grapefruit with the zucchini and chickpeas. I used a creamy salad dressing for this, which was low fat. Really good.

      A really interesting and tasty combination of flavors and textures! It makes a colorful presentation as well. I used my veggie peeler to make "ribbons" with the zucchini. I think oranges would work as well as grapefruit. Thanx or a great new salad!

      I am trying to use up some grapefruit my mom sent & this is a very nice recipe. I don't think I would have thought of mixing these together on my own. I liked them together. I have had this a couple times this week for lunch. Thanks for sharing.
