Avocado + Grapefruit Salad

Let me tell you about something wonderful


It's juicy and pink pink pink and lusty and sweet and bitter and sour and ZANGY.

This is a salad featuring avocado, and grapefruit.

You begin by peeling a grapefruit.
Then you section it and get rid of all the thick, pale, membraneous skin, just because.
You peel and slice a whole avocado. Yes a whole avocado. Just for you.

This is a very luxerious salad.

Arrange the grapefruit and the avocado on a sprightely bed of winter lettuce.
Spread delicate webs of your finest prociutto over the top.
Toss gently with a simple vinaigrette.
For the clueless, here is how you make a vinaigrette. It's 3 parts oil to 1 part vinegar. Or Three teaspoons olive oil to 1 teaspoon vinegar. Add pepper and salt to taste.
Douse salad with vinaigrette.
But not too much.
Toss salad gently.
Tossing is the most important part.


p.s. you can add blueberries, if you're feeling fancy.

I've gotten re-addicted to grapefruit in the last week or so. I've taken to eating it in a cup with too much sugar on a much too regular basis.
Life is good, and grapefruit makes it better.
