Grapefruit and Avocado Salad

My friend, Mary Ann, had a really elegant dinner party a couple months ago. She served this absolutely delicious and simple salad. She used Girard’s Lite Champagne dressing, but if you can find it, I have included another dressing recipe below.


Grapefruit and Avocado Salad

Serves 8

4 large red grapefruit, peeled and sectioned
4 avocados, peeled, pitted, and sliced
1/3 cup orange juice
1/3 cup olive oil
3 Tbs lime juice
2 Tbs honey
salt and cracked black pepper to taste

Arrange the grapefruit sections and avocado slices attractively on plates. In a bowl, whisk together the orange juice, olive oil, lime juice, and honey until well combined; drizzle the dressing over the grapefruit and avocado slices. Season to taste with salt and black pepper. Serve immediately.
