Romaine, Grapefruit, & Red Onion Salad

I love this winter salad because of the combination of tart grapefruit, crunchy onion, and creamy avocado dressing.

Dressing:
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1 1/2 tablespoons raw honey
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
1/3 cup olive oil
1 rip avocado, peeled and pitted

Salad:
1/2 red onion, thinly sliced and soaked in ice water for 15 minutes.
1 large or 2 small heads of romaine
1 large grapefruit, peeled and sectioned

Drain onion and pat dry. Combine lettuce, onion, and grapefruit in a bowl.

To make the dressing, combine all the ingredients in a blender until smooth and creamy. Thin with water if necessary. I like to transfer the dressing to a squirt bottle (a plastic agave nectar bottle works well). Drizzle each salad plate with the dressing. Top with lettuce mixture, and drizzle more dressing on top.

This salad is so pretty and so easy. Try it out at your next dinner party!
