KISS: Gator Pear and Grapefruit Salad


Ingredients (makes 4 servings, simply scale down for your desired portion)

  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup good olive oil
  • 4 ripe avocados
  • 2 large red grapefruits
  • Rocket/mint/coriander from your herb garden

Why did the grapefruit blush?

It saw the salad dressing: mustard, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and olive oil (slowly whhisk in the olive oil to emulsify the vinaigrette.

Cut each gator pear into 8 thick slices, and toss the slices in the vinaigrette so that they don’t go brown. Peel the grapefruits with a knife, removing all the pith, then cut between the membranes to release the segments.

Arrange gator pear and grapefruit on a platter, and spoon the vinaigrette on top.


Seasonal serve, coming right up.
