  • 1 tablespoon crushed pink peppercorns
  • 1 tablespoon chopped drained capers
  • 1/2 teaspoon flaky sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon finely grated Ruby Red grapefruit zest
  • 6 tablespoons fresh grapefruit juice
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon chopped dill
  • 2 firm, ripe Hass avocados—halved, pitted and cut into very thin wedges
  • 1 fennel bulb—halved, cored and very thinly sliced lengthwise (2 cups)
  • 1 medium Granny Smith apple, cored and thinly sliced

How to make this recipe

  1. In a bowl, mix the pink peppercorns with the capers and salt. In another bowl, whisk the grapefruit zest with the juice, oil and dill.

  2. On a serving platter, layer the avocados, fennel and apple, overlapping them slightly. Drizzle the grapefruit vinaigrette over the crudo and sprinkle with some of the pink peppercorn–caper salt. Serve immediately, passing the remaining salt at the table.

Suggested Pairing

This fragrant salad is lovely with a lightly floral southern French rosé.
