Tonight's Healthy Summer Dinner Salad

    1/2 cup grapefruit juice (FRESH ONLY)
    1/4 cup veg oil
    1.5 tablespoon mustard
    1 teaspoon chili powder
    7 or 8 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
    Salt & Pepper to taste

Grab some fresh spinach and on top add some sliced cucumbers, thinly sliced red onion, thinly sliced leftover steak (in this care medium rare London Broil that was grilled, not broiled) and sliced strawberries.  Toss with dressing and serve with a nice Malbec or any red wine that's on the sweeter, perfumey side.  You will have some left-over dressing that will probably keep for a week or so.
I came up with this when my wife requested a salad with cabbage with the leftover steak in the fridge.  Wouldn't you know it: the local fresh produce market didn't have any cabbage.  They did have incredibly perfectly plump strawberries and loose spinach.  I didn't feel like dropping $15 for a bottle of raspberry vinaigrette dressing so I figured grapefruit plus rice wine vinegar could possibly go well together.
