Avocado grapefruit salad

Avocado Grapefruit Salad Recipe

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


    1. Place rinsed and dried lettuce in salad bowl.
    2. Scoop out avocado and cut into small pieces. Add to salad bowl.
    3. 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.

    Abbreviations: C = cup; oz = ounce; Tbsp = tablespoon; tsp = teaspoon
