Until you can get your hands on some local salad fixings, add some zip to a salad with citrus. I've made this salad with both ruby red grapefruit and clementines. I prefer the tartness of the grapefruit and the beautiful color as well. Use what you like, or whatever you have lurking in your refrigerator.
Avocado and Citrus Salad with Citrus Dressing
About 4 handfuls of baby salad greens (I know that is not a scientific measurement, but that's how I do it)
1/4 small red onion, thinly sliced
1 ruby red grapefruit, sectioned and pith removed (about a cup of whatever citrus you choose)
2 small Haas avocados, cut in half and sliced cross-wise
1/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
1 heaping teaspoon honey mustard (you can use 1 teaspoon honey, and 1/4 teaspoon dijon mustard)
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
- Toss salad greens and onion together. Arrange on 4 salad plates.
- Top salad with sliced avocado and grapefruit sections.
- Measure all dressing ingredients into a small jar. Close lid and shake vigorously.
- Drizzle dressing over salad and enjoy!
