Pink Grapefruit and Avocado Salad

Tonya Young Recipe

By Tonya Young CooksWithSpice

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.

Prep Time:

Ingredients

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

Directions

1
Arrange individual whole leaves of lettuce as the bottom layer on each salad plate.
2
Peel grapefruits. Slice cross-wise, about 1/3-inch thick. Arrange 2-3 "circles" on top of lettuce.
3
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.
4
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.
5
Drizzle dressing over salad and serve!
