  • 1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 large ruby red grapefruits
  • 2 firm but ripe Hass avocados


  • In a small bowl, whisk together the dijon mustard, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Slowly whisk in the olive oil until the vinaigrette is emulsified.
  • Slice the peel and white pith off the grapefruits and then cut between the membranes to release the grapefruit segments.
  • Cut the avocados in half, remove the pits and peel off the skin. Cut the halves into slices.
  • Arrange the grapefruit segments on a large platter or 4 small plates. Arrange the avocado slices with the grapefruit.
  • Drizzle with vinaigrette and sprinkle with salt and pepper and serve immediately.

Recipe Notes

To cut the calories and Points values even further, use only 1 avocado. The dijon mustard in this recipe is quite pronounced, so if you are not sure you'll like it, use the lesser amount.
