Pink Grapefruit & Avocado Salad

  • Author: Kirsten Gjesdal


Feel refreshed with fresh pink grapefruit and avocado topped with a light homemade vinaigrette, garnished with chervil leaves.


  • 2 medium ruby grapefruits
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated grapefruit zest
  • 1 medium shallot, minced
  • 1 teaspoon white wine vinegar
  • 2 medium Hass avocados, sliced 1/4 inch thick
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Freshly ground pepper and salt
  • Chervil leaves, for garnish


  1. Using a sharp knife, cut the skin and all of the bitter white pith off of the grapefruits. Working over a bowl, cut in between the membranes to release the sections. Squeeze the juice from the membranes into the bowl.
  2. Transfer 2 tablespoons of the juice to another bowl. Add the zest, shallot and vinegar; let the dressing stand for 10 minutes.
  3. Season the avocado with salt and arrange on plates with the grapefruit sections. Stir the oil into the dressing; season with salt and pepper. Drizzle onto the grapefruit and avocado, garnish with the chervil and serve.
