Welcome to day 2 of my week of grapefruit.  Just a little trivia about this delicious fruit…Have you noticed that a grapefruit looks a lot like a large pink orange?  That is because it is the natural hybridization of a fruit called a pomelo and an orange.  And, it was first discovered in the Caribbean on the island of Barbados.

The recipe for today marries an avocado, my favorite food, and a grapefruit.

Grapefruit and Avocado Salad with Tarragon

  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon tarragon
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 grapefruit, peeled and cubed
  • 1 avocado, peeled and cubed
  1. To make the dressing, stir together the lemon juice, olive oil, tarragon, sea salt, and pepper in a small pitcher.
  2. Layer the avocado and grapefruit pieces in a small bowl.
  3. Drizzle the dressing over the avocado and grapefruit pieces and enjoy.  (I had enough dressing left over to put on greens the next day!)
