Our vege box has us inundated with citrus, including a grapefuit. Last year when a grapefruit turned up I ate it for breakfast but didn't think much of it, but y'all helped out with some great alternative grapefruit uses in the comments. One of them was this salad from Fiona - we bought a couple of avocados especially and had to wait patiently over several days for them to ripen, but it was worth it. Their mild flavour is always lifted by sour citrus, and some mixed greens are just about all you need to finish this off. As a matter of fact, we finished this serves-4 recipe off for dinner between just the two of us.
Avocado & grapefruit salad
(slightly adapted from a recipe from Fiona)
2 tablespoons olive oil
salt & pepper
2 avocados, ripe but still firm
mixed greens (we used rocket and baby spinach leaves)
1 tablespoon chopped coriander leaves
Peel and segment the grapefruit over a bowl, to catch the juice - I like this technique. Set the segments aside and whisk the oil, salt and pepper into the juice.
Dice the avocados and place them in a bowl with the grapefruit. Pour over the grapefruit juice dressing and gently toss the ingredients until the avocado is well dressed. Fold in the mixed greens and coriander.
