Grapefruit & Avocado Salad

Tired of the same old greens?  Belgian endive serves up a new twist.

Serves 4
Prep time:  30 minutes
Total time:  30 minutes

2 large red grapefruits
8 cups baby arugula
2 ripe avocados, cored, peeled and thinly sliced
1 small head Belgian endive, cut crosswise into 1/2-inch pieces
1 cup thinly sliced red onion
2 ounces herb and garlic goat cheese, crumbled
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
2 tablespoons grapefruit juice
Zest of 1 orange
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


Peel the grapefruits and remove pith.  Hold grapefruits over a bowl and remove sections by slicing along membranes; let juice collect in bowl.

Divide grapefruit sections, arugula, avocado, endive, onion, and goat cheese among four plates.  In a small jar, combine oil, vinegar, grapefruit juice, zest, mustard, salt and pepper until blended.  Drizzle over salads and serve.
