Recipe by Barb G.

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.
