Farmshare Day 3: Avocado, Grapefruit, and Spinach Salad with Maple-Sherry Vinaigrette

100% Farmshare.  100% Delicious.  And a recipe that's 100% foolproof.

Prep time: 10 minutes
Serves: 2, as an entree salad

For the Salad:
1 avocado, diced
1 grapefruit, sectioned, with pith removed, and juices from discarded sections reserved.  Good directions on how to do this can be found here.
1 handful baby spinach, rinsed and spun dry

For the Vinaigrette:
Juice from grapefruit sections
1-2T maple syrup
1-2 T EVOO
1 T sherry vinegar
Salt and pepper to taste

1. Arrange salad ingredients in a bowl.
2. Whisk together vinaigrette ingredients.  Pour over salad.  Depending on how much grapefruit juice you have, you might not need all of the dressing.
3. Top with some freshly ground black pepper and serve.


  1. The recipe looks great. Beautiful photo too!

  2. This looks like a delicious salad. I must say from the photo only I got the grapefruit mistaken for salmon. Either way I wasn't disappointed with what you presented.

  3. Thanks, Mark! Salmon would work too, although perhaps then I'd reduce the maple in the dressing.

  4. Hi Anonymous,

    EVOO is Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Next time I'll make that more clear!
