    While scallops are cooking, peel, skin, and slice grapefruit. Slice fennel thinly, reserving a few fronds. Place grapefruit, fennel, fronds, and spinach in a large bowl.
  3. Step 3

    Prepare dressing by mixing remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil, vinegar, lemon juice, shallot, mustard, honey, salt, and pepper together in a small bowl.
  4. Step 4

    Add seared scallops to the salad and mix to combine. Drizzle dressing over top.
