Avocado Grapefruit Salad With Sour Cream Honey Dressing

Serves 6

    3 pink grapefruits, chilled
    3 ripe avocados, halved, seeded, and peeled
    3/4 cup sour cream
    juice of 2 large limes
    3 tablespoons honey
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon white pepper
    mint leaves for garnish


Slice ends off grapefruits and stand upright on a counter. Cut away skin and membrane, exposing fruit. Working over bowl to catch the juice, separate sections by slicing with a serrated knife between membranes. Remove and discard seeds. Slice avocado halves lengthwise in 1/2-inch slices. Arrange alternating grapefruit sections and avocado slices on 6 salad plates.

Whisk together sour cream, lime juice, honey, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Just before serving, spoon about 2 tablespoons dressing in a stripe over each salad. Garnish with mint leaves and serve.
