Avocado, Papaya, and Pink Grapefruit Salad with Maple Dressing
This tasty recipe for avocado, papaya, and pink grapefruit salad with maple dressing comes from "In Great Taste," by Evelyn Lauder.
- 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)
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.
Slice the avocados lengthwise into 1/2-inch slices and pour the lemon juice over them. Add to the fruit mixture.
In a small saucepan, warm the maple syrup and lime juice, whisking to combine; set aside to cool.
Toss the fruits together, and drizzle with the dressing. Serve seasoned with pink pepper, if desired.
