  • Blend together all ingredients for the dressing until it is all creamy and emulsified.
  • Arrange grapefruit and avocado slices in layers on each plate
  • Sprinkle with chopped mint and cilantro.
  • Sprinkle chopped nuts.
  • Drizzle with dressing.


Here are some variations:
  • Use oranges rather than grapefruit. It works but honestly, the oranges need to be either very tangy or very sweet. I like grapefruit better.
  • Pomelo is fantastic in this
  • Use apple cider vinegar or for a sweeter taste, balsamic vinegar
  • Parsley instead of cilantro
  • Add steamed shrimp to make it a complete meal
  • Add butter lettuce to the salad.
  • Add halloumi or feta cheese if desired.
