This deceptively simple and well-balanced salad combines a variety of flavors and textures -- tart, creamy, peppery -- and comes together in a snap.



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Make dressing: In a large bowl, whisk together vinegar, sugar, and oil until combined.

  • Peel and cut grapefruit into segments (reserve juice for another use). Add watercress, avocado, and grapefruit to bowl with dressing. Season with salt and pepper; toss gently to combine. Serve.

Cook's Notes

Ruby red grapefruit are available year-round but peak from October through March. Choose those that feel heavy for their size, and look for a smooth, thin, blemish-free yellow skin (sometimes with some pink or green).
