This is one of my favorite salads in the entire world, and it’s so, so easy to make! You basically toss together some fruit and kale and enjoy. I really enjoy how the avocado and grapefruit come together to make a delicious dressing.

I also love that it’s five minutes of prep work, and a really quick and easy vegan (relatively low carb) salad. Of course, grapefruit is a fruit, so it is much higher in carbs than the rest of this salad. Reducing the amount of grapefruit will, of course, reduce the carbohydrates. 🙂

Notes on Making Grapefruit, Kale & Avocado Salad:

  • Supreming a grapefruit isn’t the easiest thing and involves a knife, so I usually just peel the fruit, and then peel the pith and membrane away from the fruit segments. It’s a little bit tedious, but worth it, since no one wants grapefruit pith in their salad!
  • There is no dressing for this – the grapefruit and avocado combine to make a delicious dressing all on their own.
  • If you let this sit in the fridge for a few hours before serving, the kale will soften, and the onion flavor will really permeate the veggies.
  • This is really good with sunflower seeds sprinkled on top.
  • I usually add this salad to a bunch of mixed greens, for more nutrition!
  • The fat in the avocado will actually help your body to absorb some of the minerals and vitamins in the kale!
  • Add more flavor by zesting a lime over the salad, and sprinkling some lime juice over everything. This will further tenderize the kale, and taste delicious!
  • You can bring the carbs down to 8.5g net by adding in only half of the grapefruit.
  • Replacing the avocado with the juice and zest of one lime brings the carbs down to 6.5g net per serving!
