  • ½ cup olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
  • ¼ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • ½ of a small shallot, minced (optional)
  • ½ tsp real maple syrup
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp ground black pepper
  • 2 ripe large Hass avocados, slightly firm
  • 2 large red grapefruit
  • 2 cups arugula leaves
  • ½ small red onion, as thinly sliced as possible


    • Place the olive oil, minced shallot, mustard, lemon juice, smoked paprika, salt and pepper into a glass jar fitted with a lid. Screw the lid on and shake the ingredients until the vinaigrette is emulsified. You can also use a bowl and a whisk.
    • Use a large, sharp knife to slice the peel off the grapefruits (be sure to remove all the white pith), then cut between the membranes to release the grapefruit segments. This can be done ahead of time.
    • Just before serving, cut the avocados in half and remove the pits, and carefully peel off the skin. Cut each half into 4 thick slices. Toss the avocado slices in the vinaigrette to prevent them from turning brown.
    • Place the arugula onto a plate or plates. Layer the avocado and grapefruit pieces. Top with the thinly sliced red onion.
