This is a lovely and light fruit and avocado salad recipe.

It is a mix of fresh grapefruit avocado slices with a lovely creamy dressing.

  • 1/4 cup chopped celery
  • 3/4 teaspoon onion salt

Method

Step 1

Arrange the greens, avocado slices and grapefruit slices on a plate. Top the salad with creamy dressing.

cooking tipsTips:

  • You can also serve the salad in the avocado shell.
  • How do you serve an avocado salad, in the skin or out of it? I prefer to take the skin off. I find that when avocados are really ripe they can begin to get small black spots near the skin. I want to make sure any of those spots are removed before eating the avocado. So I remove the skin and make sure the entire half is brushed with lemon juice to prevent it from darkening.
  • Make it a meal. Add cooked shrimp or chopped cooked chicken to the salad.

This fruit salad recipe would make a wonderful light lunch on its own served with some fresh crusty bread, or serve it as an appetizer or side dish with something like a quiche or cheese soufflé.

The dressing is a mix of mayonnaise and sour cream with celery and green or red peppers for color and crunch.
