    Mother’s Day is this weekend and a refreshing Grapefruit Salad is called for.  If you are not up for that, try this dressing on a fruit salad with grapefruit, orange, pineapple, grapes and mandarin oranges.  Beautiful and Delicious!

    Grapefruit & Avocado Salad Dressing

    1 tsp dry mustard                                         1 cup Canola oil

    1 tsp salt                                                        2 TBL red wine vinegar

    ¼ cup sugar                                                  ½ tsp celery seed

    2 tsp grated onion                                        Paprika

    Mix mustard, salt, and sugar in small deep bowl.  Add onion to make a smooth paste.  Add Canola oil, dripping in a little at a time and beating constantly.  The dressing will be very thick.  Thin it down with red wine vinegar.  Repeat until all the oil and vinegar have been used.  Stir in celery seed to taste and enough paprika to give the dressing a rosy color.  Makes 2 cups

    Salad

    Before serving, cut the avocado in 1/2, remove the seed, and carefully peel off the skin. Cut each half into 4 thick slices. Toss the avocado slices in the Salad Dressing to prevent them from turning brown. Peel the grapefruits (be sure to remove all the white pith), then cut between the membranes to release the grapefruit segments.

    This is very versatile.  You can use mixed greens or just arrange the Avocado and Grapefruit on a platter.  We suggest arranging the Grapefruit and Avocado on a bed of mixed greens and topping with toasted sliced almonds. Spoon the vinaigrette on top, sprinkle with salt and pepper, serve and enjoy!

    Happy Mother’s Day!
