This Citrus Avocado Salad recipe makes 8 servings; it’s a great platter for a brunch or a shower.
Happy Healthy Tip: Avocados have more potassium than bananas, which can reduce blood pressure and help to maintain electrical gradients in the body’s cells.
1 grapefruit, rind removed
1 orange, rind removed
2 small yellow tomatoes
2 tbls champagne vinegar
4 tbls extra virgin olive oil
1 tbls honey
8 mint leaves
1 cup fresh sprouts
8 edible flowers
Coarse salt and fresh black pepper
Whisk the vinegar, oil and honey in a small bowl.
Holding the fruit over the vinaigrette bowl, cut sections out of the grapefruit and orange (juices will drip into the vinaigrette bowl) then dice the fruit segments and place in the bowl. Dice the tomatoes, add to the bowl and toss well.
Slice the avocados in half, remove pit (scoop out of the shell if desired) and set on platter. Fill each avocado cavity with a scoop of the citrus salad.
Garnish each salad with sprouts, a pinch of salt and pepper and a torn mint leaf or two. Drizzle the remaining dressing over each avocado.
