  • 2 pink grapefruits
  • 1 medium papaya
  • 2 firm, ripe avocados, cut in half, pitted, and peeled
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • Juice of 3 limes
  • Freshly ground pink peppercorns, (optional)


  1. Remove peel and pith from the grapefruit using a sharp paring knife. Carefully cut between membranes to remove segments, and place in a medium bowl. Peel the papaya, cut in half, and remove seeds. Slice into pieces about 2 1/2 inches by 1/2 inch thick. Add to the bowl, and toss to combine.

  2. Slice the avocados lengthwise into 1/2-inch slices and pour the lemon juice over them. Add to the fruit mixture.

  3. In a small saucepan, warm the maple syrup and lime juice, whisking to combine; set aside to cool.

  4. Toss the fruits together, and drizzle with the dressing. Serve seasoned with pink pepper, if desired.
