    Barb Gertz's Note:

    This is a very good and simple Salad with the Grapefruit and Avocado. The almonds add a salty touch. The reripe comes from Sunset Magazine. My Daughter-in-laws mother use to make a salad very similar to this.

      Tasty and different salad. I enjoyed this unique combination of ingredients and felt it made a lovely presentation with the colorful chunks of grapefruit and avocado. This was a hard sell though to the rest of the family, who felt the dressing was too tangy. I felt the dressing needed a more robust flavor - perhaps additional herbs & seasonings would do the trick. Still, a very tasty,tart salad for grapefruit fans. The nuts were an especially nice touch.

      This is remarkably similar to Alice Waters' salad from her fruit cookbook, and I absolutely love it! The main differences are it uses champagne vinegar instead of the lime, specifies 2 tablespoons of the grapefruit juice go into the dressing, and you marinate the onions in the dressing first. I have even used regular onions as well. I have not tried it with the almonds, but that sounds like it would be really good too, These flavors sing together!
