grapefruit avocado salad


  • 1 -2 head(s) butter lettuce
  • 2 grapefruits
  • 2 avocados
  • 3 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp. ground mustard
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Separate the butter lettuce leaves. Rinse them clean and pat them dry. Set aside. Cut the peel off the grapefruits. Over a bowl to catch the juices, cut the grapefruits into sections. Set sections aside and reserve the juice.

Halve avocados. Remove pit, peel, and cut into slices. Set aside. In a large bowl, whisk together the oil, lemon juice, 1 Tbsp. of the reserved grapefruit juice, and mustard. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Add butter lettuce leaves to bowl of dressing (rip into bite-size pieces if you like). Toss gently until leaves are evenly coated in the dressing. Lift dressed lettuce out of the bowl and divide into individual plates. Put avocado slices in the bowl and toss to coat with any remaining dressing. Place on individual plates.

Add grapefruit sections to individual salads. Drizzle any remaining dressing over the salads. * I ate this salad Sunday night as a detox meal…after a long weekend in Vegas.
