This was one of my favorite salads growing up. My grandmother would serve it in a butter lettuce leaf cup with just grapefruit, avocado, and a light vinegarette. This version has a bit more too it, and is equally good.

  • 1 tsp finely grated orange rind
  • 4 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp red wine vinegar

        This sounds really great John! I haven't had an avocado in a very long time. I'll have to try this soon!
