Recipe by Countrywife

I got this from my MIL who got it in a pamphlet with some exotic pink grapefruit from Florida. That was 30 years ago and pink (much less Ruby Red) grapefruit were still a rarity in the stores.

I cannot believe I found this recipe! I hadn't thought about it for years. I lived in a sorority house at UCLA in the late 50s, and this salad was served there upon occasion. I think canned grapefruit was used for this. The slices of grapefruit were alternated with slices of avocado and a trail of Thousand Island dressing (mostly likely) was drizzled down the middle of the slices nestled on a bed of shredded lettuce. It was delicious, and everyone loved it. I even served it at my home when I got married and had people over for dinner. Very simple and absolutely delicious! I'm sure fresh grapefruit would be even more delicious. Thanks for bringing back a lovely memory!

  1. Mix everything together.
  2. I usually mix the grapefruit pieces and juice with the mayo first to thin it down and then add the avocado and lettuce.
