Grapefruit-Avocado Salad

The tangy citrus and ripe avocado combo makes a refreshing side to Mexican dishes.


  • 2 avocados, halved and pitted*, sprinkled with lime juice
  • 2 ruby red grapefruit
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 3/4 teaspoon coarse sea salt
  • Fresh chives or cilantro, chopped for garnish


*To remove the pit from the avocados: halve lengthwise, gently tap the pit with the sharp edge of a big knife, twist the pit free. Over a bowl, use a sharp paring knife to remove peel and pit from grapefruit and carve out fruit segments from between membranes. Add fresh lime juice to bowl. Place each avocado half on a plate, top each with grapefruit mixture, a sprinkle of coarse salt, and fresh chopped chives or cilantro. Serves 4.
