  • When selecting a grapefruit, look for one that is firm and heavy for its size.
  • When selecting avocados, make sure they are ripe and slightly soft to the touch.

  • Substitute the grapefruit for oranges - This substitution will provide a sweeter flavor to the salad and a different texture, while still providing the same nutritional benefits.
  • Substitute the parsley for cilantro - This substitution will provide a more intense flavor to the salad and will add a bit of spice to the dish.

Fruity Shrimp Salad Replace the grapefruit with 1 cup of diced pineapple and 1/2 cup of diced mango. Add 1/4 cup of honey to the dressing for a sweet flavor.

Q: How do I section a grapefruit?

A: To section a grapefruit, first cut off the top and bottom of the fruit. Cut off the peel and pith from the outside of the fruit. Cut the grapefruit in half and then cut each half into wedges. Once the wedges are cut, you can easily remove the segments from the membrane. Save the juice for the dressing.
