Grapefruit Avocado Salad

The healthy colorful salad contain two of my favorite ingredients: avocado and grapefruit. The slightly sourness and sweetness from the grapefruit pairs well with the creamy avocado. When I stumbled upon this recipe, I had to try it, and it was a winner for sure.  

This is how I made the salad:

This recipe is adapted from a recipe by Elise Bauer from Simplyrecipes.com.

Serves 3-4


  • 2 avocados, peeled and sliced
  • 2 grapefruits, peeled and cut into filets
  • lettuce


  • ½ shallot, minced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh oregano leaves, chopped
  • 1 lime, zest and juice
  • 50 ml olive oil 
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • salt and pepper to taste



Mix and emulsify the dressing in a bowl and set aside.

Fillet the grapefruits with a sharp knife. Cut the top and bottom off. Set your knife where the white meets the flesh and start cutting downward in a curved motion following the shape of the grapefruit. Keep doing this until you have peeled the grapefruit. Carefully cut the segments out as filets.

Arrange the avocado and grapefruit segments on a platter, on top of some lettuce. Drizzle the dressing on top, and serve immediately.
