Tangy citrus dressing enlivens peppery watercress in this brunch salad.

  • Portion size 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 ruby red grapefruits
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 avocado peeled and sliced
  • 1 bunch watercress coarse stems removed
  • 2 cups torn radicchio lettuce
  • 2 tablespoons thinly sliced green onions

Method

With vegetable peeler, peel rind from 1 of the grapefruit. With knife, cut enough rind into long paper-thin strips (julienne) to make 1/4 cup (50 mL); set aside. Peel remaining grapefruit. Cut away white pith from all grapefruit. Working over sieve set over measuring cup or bowl, slice grapefruit between membranes and pulp to release sections; set aside. Squeeze membranes to make 1/2 cup (125 mL) juice.

In small saucepan, cover reserved rind with water and bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer until tender, about 1 minute; drain and add to grapefruit juice. Add oil, sugar, salt and pepper. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate dressing and grapefruit in separate airtight containers for up to 2 days.)

Peel, pit and slice avocado. In bowl, toss watercress with radicchio. Top with grapefruit and avocado; drizzle with dressing. Sprinkle with onions.
