    2 tsp grated fresh root ginger
    1 shallot, finely chopped
    1 tbsp Japanese rice vinegar
    1 tbsp olive oil
    ½ red chilli, deseeded and finely diced
    1 pink grapefruit
    1 fennel bulb, finely sliced with a mandoline and fronds reserved

    1. To make the dressing, stir the ginger, shallot, vinegar, oil and chilli together in a bowl. Peel and segment the grapefruit over the bowl to catch any juices, then set the segments aside.
