Grapefruit Salad with Avocado, Honey and Mint
Prep time
Total time
A bright, fresh and juicy salad that makes the perfect light meal or side dish during the otherwise dark months of winter!
Recipe type: salad
Serves: 2-4 servings
  • 2 Ruby Red grapefruits
  • 2 Oro Blanco (or other white-fleshed) grapefruits
  • 2 small avocados
  • Handful of mint leaves, rough chopped
  • Honey and extra virgin olive oil for drizzling
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  1. Using a knife, peel the grapefruits and cut off any remaining white pith.
  2. Cut the grapefruit segments carefully over a bowl, being sure to avoid including the white skin between each segment, as this can be bitter. Place the segments in a different medium-sized bowl (the one you're cutting over will catch the juice - the other is for the salad)
  3. Slice the avocado into medium-thin wedges, and add to the bowl of grapefruit segments.
  4. Add several tablespoons of fresh chopped mint, a tiny pinch of salt and a drizzle of honey.
  5. Toss gently to combine and taste for seasoning. Add black pepper, more honey and/or a little drizzle of olive oil if desired.
