Pink Grapefruit & Avocado Salad

January/February 2012

Your rating: None Average: 4.3 (10 votes)

This is a special-occasion salad that pairs grapefruit segments with creamy avocado, pungent red onion, crunchy pomegranate seeds and aromatic, herby basil. Look for grapefruit with firm, shiny skin that are heavy for their size, which means they will have lots of juice. Store grapefruit for 1 week at room temperature or 1 month in the refrigerator.

This is a really easy and delicious salad - especially if you can find pomegranate seeds (Trader Joe's carries them). Assembles quickly. I didn't have fresh basil, used less red onion, and tossed it with baby spinach. Served it at a luncheon with 3-layer finger sandwiches, and it was the perfect counterpoint. Will definitely make again.

wonderful winter salad

This salad is insane. I want it for breakfast, lunch and dinner! I agree with the other reviewer--definitely worth the effort. (FYI - EatingWell's tips on how to de-seed a pomegranate in a bowl of water are very helpful for this recipe!)

Lots of different flavors that work well together!

This salad is SO good! It has so many different flavors and textures but it blends so nicely together! I did take me a while; however, to peel and section the grapefruits and it was messy. I would definitely say this salad is worth the time and effort.

Amazingly good!

I really liked the flavors,

I really liked the flavors, but found the directions lacking.
The recipe never says when to mix in the salad dressing. I mixed it with the grapefruit mixture which included the grapefruit juice and found it VERY liquid-y. Had to use a slotted spoon to serve, so that there wouldn't be too much liquid on the plate.
