To remove the citrus fruits' bitter white pith for this fresh recipe, cut the peel away with a sharp knife. This recipe makes more dressing than you'll need; you can refrigerate the extra for up to 5 days.
Prep: 18 minutes
Makes 4 servings
1/3 cup orange juice
1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
3 tablespoons lime juice
2 tablespoons honey
1 medium halved peeled avocado, seeded and cut into 1/2-inch chunks
1 peeled pink grapefruit, cut into sections
1 peeled navel orange, cut into sections
1/2 red pepper, chopped
4 minced green onions
4 cups field greens
1. Combine first 4 ingredients (through honey) in a food processor or blender, or use a handheld immersion blender, and process for 1 minute until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
2. Combine the remaining ingredients (except the greens) in a large, nonreactive bowl (glass, stainless steel, or glazed ceramic). Toss with half of the dressing to moisten. Serve over field greens. (Serving size: 1 cup greens, about 1/2 cup grapefruit mixture, and 2 tablespoons dressing.)
