I love this salad is easy to make and very tasty.

4 Servings

2 avocados
2 red grapefruits
1/2 pound cooked and peeled shrimps
Lettuce leaves

Peel and cut the avocado in small pieces, arrange on lettuce leaves, alternately with grapefruit sections from which the membrane has been removed and with the shrimps.
Serve with  the following dressing:

1/4 cup Modena vinegar or grapefruit juice

3/4 cup olive oil

salt, pepper

Combine  in a small bowl, if desired the bowl may be rubbed with a cut clove of garlic, or a clove of garlic may be soaked in the dressing until it is use.

Beat these ingredients with a wire whisk until they are well mixed and smooth.

I hope you like it.
