Pink Grapefruit & Avocado Salad

PrepTime: 10 minutes

Servings: 2


2 medium ruby grapefruits

1 teaspoon finely grated grapefruit zest

1 medium shallot, minced

1 teaspoon white wine vinegar

2 medium Hass avocados, sliced 1/4 inch thick

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

Freshly ground pepper and salt

Chervil leaves, for garnish


1. Using a sharp knife, cut the skin and all of the bitter white pith off of the grapefruits. Working over a bowl, cut in between the membranes to release the sections. Squeeze the juice from the membranes into the bowl.

2. Transfer 2 tablespoons of the juice to another bowl. Add the zest, shallot and vinegar; let the dressing stand for 10 minutes.

3. Season the avocado with salt and arrange on plates with the grapefruit sections. Stir the oil into the dressing; season with salt and pepper. Drizzle onto the grapefruit and avocado, garnish with the chervil and serve.
