This salad is a lovely complement to the spice of a rich black bean soup. This variation uses Texas Rio grapefruits, but any fresh citrus fruit such as oranges or pomelos will work.


  • 2 Texas Rio grapefruits Add to list
  • Washed greens such as spinach, watercress or arugula Add to list
  • 1/3 cup prepared orange salad dressing Add to list
  • 2 ripe avocados, sliced in thin wedges (tossed in some fresh lime juice to keep their color) Add to list
  • 1 small lime, juiced Add to list
  • 1 small or 1/2 large jicama or 1 daikon radish, cut into matchstick-size pieces Add to list
  • Sliced almonds (optional) Add to list
  • A sprinkle of chopped cilantro (optional) Add to list


Trim the peel off grapefruits so that no pith remains. Thinly slice the whole grapefruit perpendicular to the navel, about 1/4 inch, so the individual segments are all visible. The slices will look somewhat like wagon wheels.

Toss greens with half the dressing. On a nice platter or individual plates, lay a thin bed of greens; arrange grapefruit, avocado and jicama in an aesthetically pleasing way.

Drizzle remaining dressing on top of salad. Sprinkle with almonds and a little cilantro.

What is recipe for vinaigrette?

This recipe calls for a vinaigrette, but I don't see a recipe for it. Could you please provide one?

Thanks so much.

PS- I had an amazing salad that was similar to this at a restaurant called Jackelope Ranch. They used a Serrano Chili Vinaigrette and added spicy peanuts. Would you happen to have a recipe for this vinaigrette that could be used on your salad?

RE: What is recipe for vinaigrette?


Thanks for your question on this recipe.

Marie, the instructor that provided this recipe, suggests using the Black Swan Orange salad dressing (sold in the produce department) or any other prepared orange dressing.

Hope this helps!
