baby arugula salad with grapefruit & avocado
I love the creaminess of avocado combined with the bright flavors of grapefruit and tender baby arugula. This salad would also work well with baby spinach.
- 6-ounce package baby arugula
- 1/2 cup fresh or canned grapefruit sections, cut into small pieces
- 1 Hass avocado
- 1 lemon, halved
- 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
- Salt and pepper
Rinse and dry the arugula and place it in a large bowl. Add the grapefruit pieces. Peel, pit, and cut the avocado into 1-inch chunks. Squeeze a little lemon juice on it to keep it from browning. Drizzle the olive oil and squeeze more lemon juice over the salad. Add salt and pepper and toss.
