3 pink grapefruits, chilled

3 ripe medium avocados, halved, seeded, and peeled

3/4 cup sour cream

Juice of 2 large limes

3 tablespoons honey

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

Mint leaves for garnish


  1. Slice ends off grapefruits and stand upright on a counter. Cut away skin and membrane, exposing fruit. Working over a bowl to catch the juice, separate sections by slicing with a serrated knife between membranes. Remove and discard the seeds. Slice avocado halves lengthwise in 1/2-inch slices. Arrange alternating grapefruit sections and avocados slices on 6 salad plates.
  2. Whisk together sour cream, lime juice, honey, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Just before serving, spoon about 2 tablespoons dressing in a stripe over each salad. Garnish with mint leaves and serve
