Tonya's Story

A light summer salad, with an unusual twist! This was a fun recipe given to me at a friend's dinner party and since I'm always looking for new takes on salads, I snatched it up and added it to my recipes.


2 large
heads of boston leaf lettuce
2 large
grapefruits, (pink)
2 large
1/2 c
apple cider vinegar
1/3 c
1/2 c
fresh raspberries, lightly crushed

Directions Step-By-Step

Arrange individual whole leaves of lettuce as the bottom layer on each salad plate.
Peel grapefruits. Slice cross-wise, about 1/3-inch thick. Arrange 2-3 "circles" on top of lettuce.
Cut avocados in half and remove pit from each. Carefully scoop avocado out of shell with a thin spoon, trying to keep intact. Slice avocado lengthwise about 1/4-inch thick. Arrange in a "fan" on top layer of salad.
Create dressing: In a small bowl, combine vinegar, honey and the lightly crushed raspberries, whisking so that the juice and bits of berries mixes with the dressing.
Drizzle dressing over salad and serve!
