6 Servings – 10 minutes
This is such a simple, yet tasty salad. It is perfect for picnics or as a light course with a heavy dinner. I have added chopped almonds and walnuts to give an additional texture. The juice from the grapefruit is the dressing.
6 C Mesclun/Romaine lettuce
1 avocado, scored and seeded, See Note
1 grapefruit, well peeled ½ tsp sea salt
Black pepper, to taste
- Place rinsed and dried lettuce in salad bowl.
- Scoop out avocado and cut into small pieces. Add to salad bowl.
- Add all other ingredients. Serve.
Note: Use a medium-soft avocado that can be sliced. You are not making guacamole. If your avocado is overripe, no worries. Just be sure to mix the salad well for good distribution.
