Part of the fun is carpooling with our teammates. We've learned a lot about each other during these two hour trips. Our last match took us to the seacoast area and to a wonderful club with challenging opponents.

The rules require the home team to provide lunch for the visitors. Our opponents not only were great tennis players, but they were also great cooks. They put out a generous spread with sandwiches, fruits, homemade cookies... and this delicious salad.
The salad was as beautiful as it was delicious. It was Christmas colors - with radicchio lettuce, spring mix, spiced almonds, sun dried tomato pieces, pink grapefruit sections, and a slightly citrusy dressing. It was very light, crisp, and zesty.
I wanted to record a recipe to make again later. Serves 4-6 as a side dish
