"'Outrageously Good?' I'm not kidding. So simple to make, but the combination of ingredients makes it sophisticated. The mix of tangy grapefruit, sweet poppy seed dressing, buttery smooth avocados and Swiss cheese is incredible."

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note
  • You could simplify preparation even more by using jarred grapefruit, but I prefer using fresh when it's in season.

Loved this! I looked at the ingredients of this salad and my mouth started watering. It's great for the holidays because grapefruit is so delicious this time of year. To avoid the bitterness of the pith and membrane, I just cut the grapefruit in half and scoop out the flesh. If you don't like grapefruit, this is also good with craisins. I do like something a little crunchy in my salads, so I added some cashews. I used the "Poppy Seed Dressing I" recipe from this site.

Would like to see a homemade dressing. I'm not a fan of bottled dressings.

The grapefruit skins give it a bitter taste in each bite. This hasn't worked out for us at all.
