Winter Salad January 30, 2010

We’ve been feasting on soups and stews, roasted meats and all kinds of saltiness.  All of the sudden, I knew I had to have something fresh, NOW.

It may seem like an odd combination, but I was ready to brace the cold just to get another avocado for a second round!


1/2 grapefruit, peeled and sliced into rounds, or sectioned

1/2 avocado, sliced

1/4 red onion, sliced

3-4 leaves of fresh romaine lettuce, or greens of your choice

Dressing: Balsamic salad dressing of your choice.  A red wine dressing would also work.

Optional: Sprinkles of feta cheese.

Tear the romaine into bite sized pieces.  Arrange on a salad plate.  Layer the grapefruit sections and avocado slices over the lettuce.  Sprinkle the red onion slices over the top.  Drizzle with salad dressing.  Sprinkle with feta cheese if desired.
