    Simplicity is sexy; this leafless avocado salad proves it with just a few ingredients that pack a punch, both visually and nutritionally. The beautiful recipe comes from Claire Thomas of The Kitchy Kitchen.

    Full of healthy fat, fiber and vitamin C, this quick and easy avocado salad makes a stunning starter for a date night at home, a refreshing repast on a lazy autumn weekend or just a delicious treat to yourself whenever you’re feeling it…

    I love this avocado salad so much. I don’t know what it is, but while I was pregnant I was a grapefruit fiend. Grapefruit everything! It has such a lovely balance of sweet, tart and bitter – and when combined with nutty avocado and creamy coconut, every bite is balanced and bright. I added a bit of cilantro and black sesame seeds, because… why not. This is a fabulous option if you’re on a cleanse or looking for something simple and clean. And trust me, the coconut vinaigrette will become a favorite quickly. It’s good with everything and can be dressed up with curry powder to make something Thai or Indian inspired quickly.

    GRAPEFRUIT SALAD WITH COCONUT VINAIGRETTE
    Serves 4

    Ingredients:

    3 ruby red grapefruit
    3 ripe avocados, halved and sliced 1/4 inch thick
    1 lime, juiced
    1/2 cup canned coconut milk
    2 Tbsp olive oil, plus more for garnish
    1/4 cup roughly chopped cilantro leaved
    salt and pepper to taste
    black sesame, for garnish

    Directions:

    To prepare the grapefruit, chop off the top and bottom so it sits flat on the counter. With a paring knife, slice off the peel and pith, so that only the flesh shows. Pick up the grapefruit and carefully slice between the white membrane, letting slices slip out into a bowl. Once you’ve cut out every slice, squeeze the remaining grapefruit flesh over the slices in the bowl.

    To make the vinaigrette, combine the coconut milk, lime juice, olive oil and a touch of salt and pepper in a blender and puree until smooth.

    On a platter, combine the grapefruit and avocado, top with a drizzle of vinaigrette, some salt and pepper, and finish with cilantro and black sesame seeds.
