This Paleo Citrus and Avocado Salad is so good on so many levels. It is loaded with vitamins and antioxidants. Grapefruit is well known as a natural fat-metabolizer. It is the perfect way to detox your body and stabilize your blood sugar while at the same time giving you a deliciously sweet and sour taste your taste-buds will thank you for! Another thing this salad has going for it is that it has a high enough acid content that your avocado will not turn brown so it will keep for a day or two in the fridge! This means you can make it for dinner and then take the leftovers in your lunch the next day. (IF there are any leftovers)
I made this last night as a side dish for my pork chops and today I am going to have the leftovers on a bed of greens and tuna. Can’t wait!
2 grapefruits or 1 grapefruit and 1 large orange, diced
2 ripe avocados, diced
2-3 tbsp fresh cilantro or parsley, chopped fine
1-2 tbsp fresh chives or scallions, chopped fine
cherry tomatoes, halved (optional)
juice from 2 limes
1-2 tbsp honey (optional but recommended, if you use the orange you need less honey)
1/4 c olive oil
In a serving bowl, whisk the dressing ingredients together. This emulsifies into a nice thick dressing. Add the rest of the ingredients and toss until all are covered with the dressing. Serve and enjoy! Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge.
