Avocado and Grapefruit Salad

Avocado and Grapefruit Salad

I'm a big fan of both avocados and grapefruit and lately I've seen them paired together quite often. I decided to throw together a little salad and see what the taste combination was like. I must say I really like the combination! It's simple, healthy and a quick fix for lunch or a light dinner. If you like avocado and grapefruit, you'll love this!

What You'll Need Per Person:
1 avocado
1/2 a large red grapefruit
Avocado oil (Note: If you can't find avocado oil then extra virgin olive oil will work fine.)
Freshly ground black pepper
Coarse sea salt

Slice avocado and grapefruit into wedges and arrange in a fan pattern around a plate. Drizzle with some avocado oil, sprinkle with freshly ground black pepper and coarse sea salt. Serve immediately.

Notes: Due to the avocado this salad is an eat it when you make it kind of deal. If you try to store it the avocado will turn brown and mushy. I wouldn't make it more than 30 minutes before you plan to serve.

What a beautiful salad. I love both avocado and grapefruit but never would have thought to combine them. I usually just eat grapefruit halves plain with a spoon, but I recently ordered a 20-pound case of grapefruit from a kid in town participating in the FFA annual fundraiser (along with our usual 40 pounds of oranges). I have a feeling I should start collecting grapefruit recipes! : )

P.S. I discovered your blog through the BlogHerAds headlines. Everything looks delish!

I had never thought of putting them together either, but they actually taste really good together.

Thanks! :o)
