This pretty salad from Alice Waters, the iconic chef-owner of Chez Panisse in Berkeley, California, is best in the winter, when grapefruit is at its prime.

  1. 2 medium ruby grapefruits
  2. 1 teaspoon finely grated grapefruit zest
  3. 1 medium shallot, minced
  4. 1 teaspoon white wine vinegar
  5. 2 medium Hass avocados, sliced 1/4 inch thick
  6. Salt
  7. 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  8. Freshly ground pepper
  9. Chervil leaves, for garnish
  1. Using a sharp knife, cut the skin and all of the bitter white pith off of the grapefruits. Working over a bowl, cut in between the membranes to release the sections. Squeeze the juice from the membranes into the bowl.
  2. Transfer 2 tablespoons of the juice to another bowl. Add the zest, shallot and vinegar; let the dressing stand for 10 minutes.
  3. Season the avocado with salt and arrange on plates with the grapefruit sections. Stir the oil into the dressing; season with salt and pepper. Drizzle onto the grapefruit and avocado, garnish with the chervil and serve.
