How to Cook Avocado Cucumber and Grapefruit Salad

  2. Wash the cucumbers and cut into small cubess about ½" (1cm) square. Zest the grapefruit and one orange, then peel the grapefruit and the oranges and removed the segments making sure that no membrane remains. Place the fruit segments into a bowl along with the roast almonds then chop the mint and chives and add to the bowl. Add in the zest from the grapefruit and orange, then mix well.
  3. Create the dressing by mixing the vinegar, honey, olive oil, grapefruit and lemon zest together, along with a pinch of salt. Mix well (or whisk) then taste and adjust to your own preference.
  4. Remove the stones and the skin from the avocados and cut into small dice about ½" (1cm) square. Mix into the salad the drizzle over enough dressing to coat the ingredients. Top with any additional herbs or almonds and serve immediately with warm bread,
