Grapefruit and Avocado Salad

 

This simple salad is as delicious as it is gorgeous. The bright grapefruit and creamy avocado complement each other impeccably well. To preserve the individual flavors of each fruit, I keep the dressing simple using only olive oil and Maldon sea salt. The microgreens add an additional boost of nutrients, and the pistachios give the salad a delightful crunch. This salad is a beautiful accompaniment to any brunch, lunch, or dinner table.
