I thought this such an interesting combination of colors and flavors I just had to share jbaugher’s recipe here. It includes avacado, grapefruit and dijon mustard!

Avocado and Grapefruit Salad
Serves 4

Make the Vinaigrette

1 T dijon mustard
1/4 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
1 1/2 tsp kosher salt
3/4 tsp fresh group black pepper
1/2 cup olive oil

Cut the grapefruit up (I recommend supreme cut):

3 large red grapefruits

Cut that avocado up (dip in vinaigarette if you aren’t going to be serving for a while):

3 ripe hass avocados

Arrange grapefruit and avocados on plate all pretty like and spoon on some vinaigarette, maybe a little more salt and pepper.

  1. It sounds yummy. I’m not all that fancy and sometime will open a bag of greens from Trader Joe’s and add grapefruit sections and avocado slices. Almost any dressing will do but my favorites are a spicy peanut or raspberry vinaigrette.
