This was delicious although quite acidic with lemon juice and the grapefruit. I love acidic but for me the ratio was off. I used a Meyer lemon in the salad dressing and a juicy, red grapefruit in the salad. I will make this again and play with the proportions a little. It's good just for me it needs a little fine tuning. Made for Recipe Swap #83 in the Australian forum.

I didn't enjoy this salad as much as I thought I was going to. I love all the ingredients, it just didn't come together very well. I probably won't attempt to make it again.

This was a delightful summer salad. I used a Chef John Folse’s plain strained yogurt (local in near N.O., LA). I also used golden raisins that I had on hand. I used the salted/sugar pecans and could not have been more pleased. Like one of the other reviewers I was not sure how the avocados would blend with grapefruit. I was pleasantly surprised. This is definitely a five star keeper.
