General info

Serves: 8
Preparation Time: 20 mins


  • 1 grapefruit

  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Salt, to taste
  • 125g rocket leaves
  • 100g flaked almonds,
  • Lightly toasted


  1. Peel the grapefruit and oranges with a very sharp knife so that there is no pith visible. Slice the grapefruit and oranges into thin 2mm slices.
  2. Peel and slice the avocado, and drizzle with lemon juice to prevent it from going brown. Season with salt.
  3. Arrange the avocado, orange and grapefruit slices on a platter with the rocket leaves. Sprinkle over the flaked almonds, and then a little of the balsamic dressing.
