Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup whole-milk plain 
Greek yogurt
  • 3 tbsp buttermilk
  • 1 tbsp raw honey
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 3 small pink and/or white 
grapefruit
  • 2 small avocados
  • 2 heads butter leaf lettuce, trimmed and torn into bite-size pieces
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh mint leaves

Preparation

  1. Prepare dressing: In a small bowl, whisk together yogurt, buttermilk, honey, salt and pepper. Cover and set aside in the refrigerator.
  2. Cut peel from grapefruit, including the white pith. Working over a bowl to catch juices, carefully cut between membranes and release segments. Set segments and any accumulated juices aside separately.
  3. Peel, pit and thinly slice avocados, arranging slices in a bowl with grapefruit juice. (NOTE: Ensure that avocado slices are coated with juice to avoid browning.)
  4. Divide lettuce among individual plates (or arrange on a platter). Arrange grapefruit segments and avocado slices on top. Drizzle with dressing and sprinkle with mint just before serving.
