Ingredients

2 grapefruits 600 g
2 tbsp lime juice, freshly squeezed 1 lime
2 tsp honey 14 g
1/4 cup olive oil 65 mL
1/2 dried chili peppers 0.4 g
1/2 Boston lettuce 100 g
2 avocados 340 g
salt [optional]
ground pepper to taste [optional]

Method

  1. Using a sharp knife, remove the peel, pith, and outer membranes from the grapefruits. Working over a small bowl to catch the juices, cut out the segments. Squeeze any remaining juice into the bowl. Alternatively, cut the grapefruits crosswise into rounds with a thickness of 7-8 mm. Set the segments or rounds aside.
  2. Add the lime juice, honey, and olive oil to the reserved grapefruit juice. Mince the chili pepper and add it to the bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Whisk until the vinaigrette is emulsified.
  3. Place the lettuce leaves in a serving bowl. Season with salt and pepper, then drizzle with about ¼ of the vinaigrette and toss well.
  4. Cut the avocados in half lengthwise, working around the stone. Twist to open, remove the stone, then peel. Cut the avocados into bite-size pieces, then scatter them over the lettuce. Add the grapefruit pieces. Pour the remaining vinaigrette over the salad and serve.

We love this recipe and make it as a special treat. We make it very basic and only use lettuce, avocado and grapefruit as the juice from the grapefruit and the oil from the avocado make a tasty and light dressing.
