Grapefruit with Avocado CreamDressings and SaucesFruits and DessertsLunch and Light MealsSide DishesSoups and Salads
Every Super Bowl and most Sundays during footbal season my kids ask me to make guacamole and I almost always have a couple avocados left over. Today I decided to create my own version of a grapefruit and avocada salad with the extra ingredients I had on hand. I must say this recipe is really tasty, super simple to prepare and the cheerful colors pop against a dreary gray winter sky.
1 large grapefruit, peeled, sectioned with most of the pith removed.
2 medium-sized, ripe avocados, cut in half, peeled with pit removed
1/3 cup olive oil
1/2 tsp sea salt
1-2 Tbsps lime juice (optional)
Cilantro, chopped for garnish (optional)
In a medium-size mixing bowl, combine all the ingredients except for the grapefruit.
Using a hand mixer or blender (I don't like using a blender as much for this recipe because I find it a pain in the butt to get all the avocado mixture out from the bottom of the blender) mix the ingredients until they form a smooth texture.
Arrange the grapefruit on individual plates and spoon the avocado mixture on top of the grapefruit, sprinkle with sea salt and pepper to taste, cilantro (optional) and serve.
