Grapefruit Cucumber Stuffed Avocado Salad


    Once a week I head to the island, so Chloe can hang out with her best friend. They have been doing this for a good 14 years. We mom's knit, chat and cook all day. Both of us are foodies and have similar diet restrictions. I have to say, over these years we have ate very well. This is a salad I made the other week for our get together. I have to say it was quite tasty and easy to make!!


Grapefruit Cucumber Stuffed Avocado Salad

one avocado, halved, pitted and skin removed

2 grapefruits, cut into wedges. I save the juice from the leftover grapefruit in a little bowl

1/3 of cucumber, cubed

6 or so kalamata olives, sliced

a drizzle of good olive oil

garlic clove, minced

salt and pepper to taste


Mix all ingredients except the avocado together. Add a bit of the leftover juice from the grapefruit and adjust taste to suite your palate. Fill avocado with salad and enjoy.

This salad is easy to bling up. Any fruit, cheese, snow peas, a little chopped salami are all good. The possibilities are endless.

What a lovely way to spend a day!


Pretty and delicious, I'm sure!


LOVE this combination Clarice. I would never have thought to meld them together in such a way.

I think it's so cute that everyone gets to "play" in one way or another:) Thanks so much for sharing, Clarice...


Such a beautiful, tasty salad! I never though of kalmata olives and grapefruit together but it works! (And what lovely china!!) :)
