Updated April 29, 2010

Ingredients

  • 3
    cups torn leaf lettuce
  • 3
    cups torn iceberg lettuce
  • 2
    grapefruit, peeled, sectioned
  • 3
    oranges, peeled, sectioned
  • 1
    avocado, peeled, pitted and sliced
  • 1/4
    cup slivered almonds, toasted if desired*
  • 1
    cup purchased poppy seed salad dressing

Steps

  • 1
    In large serving bowl, toss leaf and iceberg lettuce. Arrange grapefruit, oranges, avocado and almonds over greens. Serve with dressing.

  • To prepare citrus for salads, use a sharp paring knife. Working over a bowl to catch the juices, peel the fruit all around, cutting just deeply enough to expose the flesh. Make V-shaped cuts between the membranes to release the fruit's flesh into the bowl below. The chewy membranes and bitter pith will be left behind and can be discarded; the salad will contain morsels of juicy, tender citrus.
