Slices of citrusy grapefruit alternated with slices of creamy, buttery avocado is one of our favorite taste combinations – indescribably good! We’ve made this simple salad for years, but recently we added toasted almonds and loved the crunch.
Lots of recipes call for finishing the salad with a honey blend or even a viniagrette. We think this simple salad is perfect without any other additions!
1 grapefruit, supremed* (Rudy red are great in this recipe but I had a yellow one on hand)
1 avocado, cut into slices
Handful of sliced toasted almonds**, optional
- Arrange the avocado sliced and grapefruit sections on a platter – we like to alternate avocado slices and grapefruit. Eat as is or add almonds.
- Sprinkle with toasted almonds if desired.

**Toasting Almonds: spread sliced almonds on a baking pan, spreading out in order to toast evenly. Add almonds to a preheat 350° oven and bake/toast for about 5 minutes, watching carefully. They should begin to brown and smelly nutty. Watch cafefully.
