Grapefruit Avocado Salad with Pistachios and a Sweet-Tangy Vinaigrette
Sunshine in a bowl on a snowy day!
Simple & Fresh!
There is something about citrus this time of year and I am a huge fan of grapefruit. It is tart and tangy but has an underlying sweetness. Paired with creamy avocado, the contrast really brings out the flavor of both. Add some mache rosettes, pistachio and a sweet-tangy vinaigrette made with EVOO, maple syrup, fresh lemon juice and apple cider vinegar and it is a pure delight to the senses! Perfect salad on a snowy winter day!
And did I mention that this salad is packed with nutrients and healthy fats so it is really satisfying too! Grapefruit and avocado are nutritional powerhouses with lots of vitamins and minerals!
A simple, winter salad that tastes fresh and is loaded with nutrients.

Adjust the quantities according to tastes and how many you're feeding. The salad is for one serving, the dressing is for several because I like having extra dressing ready to grab for the next few days.
5-6 Grapefruit slices
½ avocado sliced
Approx 1 cup Mache Rosettes
Handful of roasted, salted pistachios
Dressing (feel free to add more or less lemon, maple syrup or vinegar depending on tastes. All taste good just depending on if you want a little tarter, sweeter or tangier)
2 TBSP Lemon Juice
2 tbsp maple syrup
3 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar (I've also used 1½ tbsp when I've wanted it a bit tangier)
