Grab a Grapefruit…

…and off we go! Here goes with my first post this year. It’s a juicy grapefruit salad.

4 grapefruits
2 avaocados
2 fennels
a handful of lamb’s lettuce
1 tsp cardamom
1/2 a lemon
3 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp honey
salt and pepper

Cut the grapefruit into small slices. Chop up the avocados in cubes and slice the fennel. Scatter the lettuce into a bowl and add the grapefruit, avocado and fennel. Whisk the dressing ingredients together and pour over the salad.

No need to start the year with a guilty conscience. Now enjoy this!

  2. I love grapefruit and I eat it very often when I’m in Spain or California, but now that I live in London it’s really hard to find good ones! They are always unripe and too bitter… but if I find a good one I will try and make a salad with it 🙂

    Oh this sounds so fresh a delicious, what a great combo! A beautiful starter idea for a dinner party! Noting it for the future, thanks for sharing!

  4. Ooh, yes, grapefruit! I love the mix of tang and sweet that grapefruit brings to the table, but I don’t buy it often because I know barely any recipes that require it. It would certainly make a perfect addition to a salad, where I usually use a sweet orange or apple. I have one or two standby salad recipes (one lettuce, one bean); I must file this away to try when the spring weather returns and my family feels more open to eating cool, crisp greens. (Alas, winter in New England does not encourage such tastes.)

  6. Thank you for stopping by my blog and liking a post. This recipe looks great. I make a similar grapefruit salad without the fennel and will have to try this. Congrats on a lovely blog overall. I’ve enjoyed exploring it.
